🇹🇳 Former Southampton player Radhi Jaidi expresses desire to manage a Premier League team

Former Southampton defender Radhi Jaidi has admitted his desire to be a manager for a Premier League team.

Jaidi who hung up his boots back in 2012 has gone on to enjoy management with the Southampton U23 team where he spent three years at the helm of the squad.

The 45-year-old is now in the United States managing United Soccer League (USL) side Hartford Athletic as of November 2019.

“My dream is to go back to England,” Jaidi told The Athletic in an interview.

“I’ve been a Premier League player and it’s so amazing. I always left the pitch smiling and enjoying the vibes and energy in the stadium.

“I aspire to be a Premier League manager in the future, whether that’s at Southampton or somewhere else. I want to be a manager on that level. I think I have the attributes to do that.

“I know how players and people around me think. I still need to work on some aspects but this experience in America has already taught me a lot.

"I feel like there is an opportunity for me to experience a higher level and make an impact on the football world.”
