Dietmar Hamann believes he is gaining "invaluable experience" at MK Dons, which he hopes will help fulfil his ambition of managing former club Liverpool. The 37-year-old joined the League One outfit in a player-coach role during the summer, having left Manchester City in 2009.
"I can gain invaluable experience and learn things from Karl, Alex and John every day while I am doing my coaching badges," he told the Daily Mail. "I want to play this year and then see.
"When I have my Pro licence, I will see where I am wanted. I would like to stay in this country but you never know.
"And it would be nice to go back to Liverpool one day and to work in some capacity, play some part. Obviously to manage them would be a dream come true."
