Pardew expects English football return after resigning from ADO Den Haag

Alan Pardew expects a return to English football after resigning as ADO Den Haag coach.

The former Newcastle, Crystal Palace and West Ham manager left the Dutch side following the cancellation of the Eredivisie season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pardew admits his next job will probably be in England.

"We decided to terminate on finance, more or less," he told talkSPORT. "I needed to take the team somewhere and there didn't look to be any direction in terms of being able to do that. But it was an enjoyable experience.

"When I took over the team got beat by Ajax six or seven and I did think 'have I made the right decision here?'

"But it was in my mind to go and work abroad and that was really what I wanted to do. It was an opportunity so I thought 'let's give it a go'.

"I probably will end up in England and with a club who have got the opportunity to push for some kind of promotion or some kind of success.

"The league we enjoyed. The games were tough, we should have got over the line two or three more wins where we got draws. The excitement and the level of play there would surprise many Premier League fans."
