Iain Dowie has made it clear that he is interested in the vacant position at West Ham United.
The former Hammers striker has not been in the managerâ€™s seat since leaving Hull City last summer but insists he would love to head up a club such as West Ham even if they have fallen to the English Championship.
"You never know if you will get that call or not, but I sense they may go for a slightly bigger name and look to make a statement. You would understand that and there is no problem with that.
"You always think you can add a bit of a difference and add a bit of value on the training ground. I always think it is important as a coach to develop players and I think my record is fairly good at that.
"I've always said given the right opportunity that would be right."
The former Southampton star has extensive experience managing in Englandâ€™s second and lower divisions, having stints at QPR, Oldham Athletic, Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic, Coventry City and Hull.
