Phelan keen on return to management after Hull stint

Mike Phelan insists his ill-fated reign at Hull has not diminished his desire to return to football management.

Phelan was sacked from his role at the KC Stadium earlier this month after just 85 days in full-time charge of the struggling Premier League club.

But the former Manchester United assistant is keen to put the experience behind him and pursue other opportunities as they arise.

Phelan told BBC Radio Five's Sportsweek programme:

I certainly want to be a manager again.

I've been in the game long enough to know there's a certain period when you can reflect then a certain period when you get itchy again.

It (management) was the next step - I wanted to find out whether I was capable of doing that sort of role and I felt good.

It has whetted my appetite to stay in the management game. Obviously I can do the coaching and assistant bit, but it's just a case of sitting back and seeing what develops.

– Former Hull manager Mike Phelan
