Bryan Robson has revealed he will consider a return to management if the right option arises in the future.
The Manchester United legend enjoys his current role as an ambassador with the Reds but feels he could be tempted by a fresh opportunity at international level after coaching Thailand between 2009 and 2011.
As he embarks on a gruelling Kilimanjaro trek to raise funds for the Manchester United Foundation, the ex-England skipper is ready to consider more new challenges on his return.
"I think it’d be wrong if I ever say I’d never do that [return to management]," he informed ManUtd.com. "That’s why I like to keep my options open.
"When I was in Thailand, I had two years of management in international football and really enjoyed the role. What was great about that job was also being able to keep involved with United in the role I do for the club. So, if a job like that ever came up, it would be something I’d consider if I thought the challenge for that country would be a good one for myself with the chance of succeeding with something."
Robson is still regularly involved with the club and has the blessing of David Moyes to continue visiting the training pitch, as he did during Sir Alex Ferguson's tenure. He travelled with the official party for the recent trip to Donetsk in his ambassadorial role and still enjoys a great bond with the Reds.
"It’s great to be part of all that," he admitted. "Even though it’s not as a coach and not playing. It’s not quite the same but the next best thing is being involved in the ambassadorial role and going around the world with the team to just be part of that. It’s an exceptional club to work for.
"I had a great time here and real success on the pitch but it’s Manchester itself that has always been a great city for me and my family. I hear of players when they go to their hometowns and the sort of thing where if they’re not going through a good time they get criticised on the street and maybe in restaurants and bars.
