Curbishley, who has been linked with the vacant manager's job at Craven Cottage, has been out of work since leaving West Ham in September 2008. The former Charlton chief is free to get back into management after winning his case for compensation against West Ham and Curbishley is now waiting for the right opportunity to come along. "My record in the Premier League I think stands up in the last 10 or 12 years," Curbishley told Sky Sports News. "So I was hoping that perhaps I might get a chance to get back in the Premier League, but it hasn't happened. "The Premier League in all fairness has been one of the more stable leagues, whereas in the Football League obviously there has been lots and lots of changes. But the Premier League has been quite stable. "So we will have to see. I just have to wait and see if anything happens over the next couple of months and if not I will evaluate it again and see where I go."
