Newcastle United hero Nobby Solano is eager to break into management.
"I've been coaching in Peru, coaching in Canada, so now I'm just trying to come back into the UK, looking for a chance, looking for an opportunity," he told the Daily Mail.
"That's my plan. It's not easy. Scotland, Premier League, League One, League Two, it's still really tough for managers because it's not an easy job, but it's a challenge. My passion is football, always football. I cannot live without football.
"I want to prove myself. I want to show what I can do as a manager.
"Hartlepool would be a why not? It is an opportunity. It is a really difficult time for the club, but it's a challenge. Life is a challenge all the time so it would be nice to get at least the opportunity."
