Michael Bridges confirms he would like Leeds United comeback, possibly not under Cellino

Michael Bridges would like to one day return to Leeds United.

Former strike sensation Michael Bridges has told Channel 5's Football League Tonight he can see himself 'definitely' returning to Leeds United one day in the future.

Bridges is currently completing his coaching badges after a spell in Australia as a player and pundit, and has his sights set on working in the UK as a manager.

He said he is open to working at Leeds United in any capacity, but admits concerns over a lack of stability with regards to the club's owner makes taking a job at Elland Road less likely.

He said: "It's a massive project, and I'm sure I'd like to play some part in trying to re-establish that [former success], but again if job security is on the line, it's hard to put yourself in that kind of predicament.

"Having so much love for the club and having great years there, you do want to go back in some capacity, whether now or in the future. It's part of my heart, I definitely want to go back."

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is onto his sixth coach in two years, meaning a short shelf life for managers at the club.

Bridges was part of the Leeds side which dazzled fans at home and in Europe in the early 2000s, but his own success at the club was cut short by injury.

He reflected on the club's fall from grace as due to circumstances beyond the means of the players, but believes the good times will soon be back at Elland Road whether he is a part of it or not.

He said: "It's tragic to see where it is and where it's gone, but it's just starting to pick up again. There's light at the end of the tunnel and the glory days aren't too far away."
