O'Neill ready for Premier return

BY foxsports • April 20, 2011

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."
