Alan Curbishley is desperate to make a return to Premier League management amid continued talk of interest from Fulham.
The former West Ham United and Charlton Athletic boss is one of the frontrunners for the vacancy at Craven Cottage following Roy Hodgson's recent departure to Liverpool.
Curbishley has been out of work since leaving the Hammers in September 2008 and is champing at the bit to return to the world of top-flight management.
"My record in the Premier League I think stands up in the last ten or 12 years," he said.
"So I was hoping that perhaps I might get a chance to get back in the Premier League, but it hasn't happened.
"The Premier League in all fairness has been one of the more stable leagues, whereas in the Football League obviously there has been lots and lots of changes. But the Premier League has been quite stable.
"So we will have to see. I just have to wait and see if anything happens over the next couple of months and if not I will evaluate it again and see where I go."
Former Manchester City manager Mark Hughes and ex-England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson have also been linked with the Craven Cottage hot-seat.
