Former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo says he's ready to jump back into management.
Di Matteo has been out of management since departing Chelsea in November 2012, just a few months after leading the club to FA Cup and Champions League success.
"As a manager I want to do it properly, so that means there's no time for anything else, it is 24/7," Di Matteo told the Sunday Times.
"I thought it's probably a good time to enjoy different aspects of life and it was also crucial for my family to settle them a little because we had been moving around for five years and they didn't see much of me and I didn't see much of them.
"I've been overwhelmed by offers, which I'm flattered by. But I made a decision. Many people disagreed but that's the way I am. I follow my own path."
Regarding his next job, Di Matteo added: "It doesn't matter what country but I need to be challenged by it. I need to feel the ambition of the club.
"You need to have a good relationship, with the board and with the owner. And you have to have a long-term vision but a short-term solution, because in the short term you need to win games while you try to implement your long-term vision."
