Everton U21 coach Alan Stubbs admits he has senior ambitions.
Stubbs, born and raised in Kirkby on the Merseyside-Knowsley border, is one of the survivors of David Moyesâ€™ regime starting a new era under Roberto Martinez. Eventually heâ€™d like to be a manager himself, and was interviewed for the Everton job.
He told the Daily Mail: "Iâ€™m lucky to have had good coaches; Moyes, Kenny Dalglish, Walter Smith. Early on at Celtic I had Dr Josef Venglos. He would have us running round training grounds holding our breath for 60 seconds. Weâ€™d be thinking 'what on earth are we doing here' but he was way ahead of anyone.
"Over the last six or seven years, we have seen a huge influx of sports science. But I think your eyes will always be the best sports scientist youâ€™ve got. If you know the game, you can see when someone is tired. You should never get away from that."
