Ex-Inter, Sheffield Wed, Villa striker Carbone yearns for Sydney coaching role

Benito Carbone has indicated that he would love to be given the opportunity to one day coach Sydney FC.

The 42-year old former striker had a short spell with the Sky Blues as a guest player in 2006, scoring two goals in three matches, and is hoping that he can return to the A-League club at one point in his life.

The former Inter Mila, Napoli, Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford City and Aston Villa forward told SBS that it is a goal of his to come back to Sydney which he rates as one of his favourite cities in the world.

"I dream that one day I will become Sydney FC's manager in the A-League," he said.

"I simply love Sydney which, along with New York, is my favourite city in the world.

"The lifestyle is fantastic and I would be great to get an opportunity to return one day.

"Sydney FC also is a big, big club and it is to Australia what Juventus is to Italy."

Carbone, who recently managed Italian amateur side Saint-Christophe, added: "I have no doubt that my stay in Sydney was one of the best periods in my life but unfortunately it was too short.

"I will always recommend Sydney and the A-League to any of my friends.

"I really mean that and, who knows, one day my dream might come true."
