Ex-Chelsea no.2 Wilkins wants to manage again

Ray Wilkins has revealed that he would love to get another managerial job after last holding the reins in 1998.

The former Chelsea assistant was at the helm at QPR and Fulham in the late 1990s, with his last head job being at Craven Cottage almost 15 years ago apart from short spells as caretaker at Stamford Bridge in 2000 and 2009.

55-year old Wilkins has admitted that he interviewed for both the Wolves and West Bromwich Albion jobs recently and although he was unsuccessful is very keen to get back into management.

"Jeremy Peace very kindly asked me to go along and have an interview and I went along to see Steve Morgan at Wolves as well on his request," he told Sky Sports.

"So I had a couple of interviews but obviously they have decided to select other guys.

"But it was very nice to be able to have a chat because I have applied on numerous occasions for other jobs and unfortunately have never got a reply.

"It didn't materialise and I don't know what the future holds to be perfectly honest. I'm very happy doing my television work.

"If the football side was to materialise then I'd certainly have a look at it because it's something I miss immensely."
