Former Sydney FC coach Littbarski keen on job in Scotland

Former Sydney FC championship-winning coach Pierre Littbarski says he would love to take a job in the Scottish Premier League.

Former Sydney FC championship-winning coach Pierre Littbarski says he would love to take a job in the Scottish Premier League.

The German tactician is currently in charge of Liechtenstein club FC Vaduz and says a good showing against Scottish club Falkirk in a pre-season friendly would do him no harm in achieving his goal.

"I had a Scottish player, Steven Tweed, play for me in Japan. He would say, 'Why don't you come to Scotland?'” he said.

"I would like the chance to coach here one day. Maybe a good result against Falkirk would help.

"I have asked for information from a lot of my friends in the UK and they have helped me. But, of course, things have changed a bit at that club.

“They have a new coach and I am sure there will be a few changes to the playing staff. I have a decent knowledge of Scottish football because, when I was in Japan, we saw every Celtic game live on the TV.

“It's going to be hard for us but perhaps one thing we have in our favour is that Falkirk will not have played any competitive matches."
