O’Neill ready for Premier return

The 59-year-old has been out of work since leaving the Villa Park

outfit last August after four years with the Midlanders. O’Neill

also had successful spells with Celtic and Leicester and following

a break from the game he is now keeping an eye out for an

opportunity to return. The Nottingham Forest legend is captivated

by the excitement of the Premier League and while he admires

Spain’s Primera Liga and Germany’s Bundesliga, England’s top-flight

remains number one in his book. “It’s been an exciting league,” he

told Sky Sports News. “It’s been an exciting league for quite a

number of years. “I think it’s the envy of a lot of other teams in

Europe. The Spanish league is terrific, but it’s a two-horse race.

The German league is very strong and very well supported. “The

Premier League I think is something to be proud of. If you’re

involved in that league at all then I think you should take great

pride in it. “I miss it a great deal. At some stage or another I’d

like another opportunity to go and manage in it again.”
