MK Dons boss Ince admits Man Utd ambition

After lifting the Johnstone's Paint Trophy yesterday, MK Dons boss Paul Ince admits he'd fancy a move to Manchester United.

In the morning press, Ince was linked with a return to Old Trafford to become part of Sir Alex Ferguson's coaching staff and he said: "There have been situations that we are all aware of where clubs have approached our chairman to talk to me but he has made it worth my while not to go anywhere else.

"We have a three or four-year plan where we feel we can take this club into the Championship.

"You look at Bristol City now and Stoke and they have got a real chance of getting into the Premier League, so that shows you what can be achieved.

"There is no reason why, with the right finances, the right staff and the right players that we can't take this club further.

"But that's in the future. If clubs come in for you as a player or as a manager then you have that decision to make whether to stay or to go.

"At this moment in time I'm happy to stay. We have got the momentum going now and there is something fresh and new happening here and I'm happy to be a part of that.

"The most important thing for me in football management is to have a good relationship with your chairman and we are both singing from the same hymn sheet here.

"As long as we are successful on the pitch, which is down to me, then I will be here - unless Manchester United put in a call. But I don't think Alex is planning to step down just yet!"
