Besiktas boss Bilic won't hide Premier League ambition

Besiktas boss Slaven Bilic admits working in the Premier League is an ambition.

Former Everton and West Ham United defender Bilic stresses he is happy in Turkey, enjoying life in Istanbul and not looking for a move. But would he want to manage in the Premier League one day?

"It's a question I get asked, not only about England, but mostly, and whatever you say, it sounds not fair to someone," he said. "I really like it here, I like this job, it's a massive club. And I'm enjoying it big time.

"But of course, one day I would be interested in England. I've been there, I've played there, I liked it there.

"Whenever I go there, okay I'm not a huge star, but I feel people like me there. And I spent my best years - and not only in football - there."
