Curbishley would consider managing abroad

Alan Curbishley has hinted he could be tempted abroad once he resumes his managerial career.

The 48-year-old takes control of Charlton for the last time on Sunday when the Addicks travel to Manchester United.

Curbishley has decided to step down after 15 years at the helm and, after a short break, would be willing to start again elsewhere, with another Premiership outfit his preferred choice.

But should a more exotic offer come his way too he would not dismiss it out of hand.

He said: 'Rafa Benitez said the other day - and he was right - that not many of the English players go abroad, let alone English managers.

'A handful have - Bobby Robson, Terry Venables and [Scottish] Graeme Souness - but not many. But as the Premiership is so global and so many people see it then who knows?

'There might be a Champions League club in Spain who is not afraid to take an Englishman. I don't know if that's the case - but certainly Champions League clubs in England are.'

Two high-profile Premiership posts are currently available with Newcastle unable to appoint caretaker Glenn Roeder full-time and Middlesbrough needing a replacement for new England boss Steve McClaren.

Roeder's appointment has been blocked because he does not have the required coaching qualifications and Curbishley was adamant that was a legitimate reason.

He said: 'The rules have been set and everybody knows about them. It is a situation that the League Managers Association has fought for and the reason is that so many experienced and qualified managers are lost to the game once they lose their jobs.

'So if a job does come around people who are qualified should have a chance of getting back in. It's nothing to do with Glenn, it is the way it is - and everybody has signed up to it. The League Managers Association is adamant it shouldn't happen.'

Curbishley's imminent departure could also spell the end of an era for his assistant Keith Peacock and first-team coach Mervyn Day.

He said: 'Obviously they are entwined with me and that's why it was a difficult decision because if I had extended my contract they would have followed suit.

'I've caused a few problems there in some respects but that's football. The chairman is discussing with them at the moment what is going to happen on top of trying to bring someone else in. And the new man might want to change it around a bit.'

Charlton will be without Luke Young, Marcus Bent, Hermann Hreidarsson, Jerome Thomas and Jay Bothroyd for the Old Trafford trip.
