first_imgLee Clark has told talkSPORT he would relish the opportunity to take charge of Fulham.The former Craven Cottage star is itching to return to management after ending a tumultuous six-month spell at Blackpool in May.He has now thrown his hat into the ring for the vacancy at Fulham, although he accepts he is an outsider for the role given some of the experienced names being bandied about.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the 43-year-old said: “Would I be interested in being manager of Fulham? Of course I would. I would be absolutely delighted it that were to be the case.“It is a special club to play for, there are terrific people behind the scenes, and it was a brilliant place for me to live with the family.“Of course I would throw my hat into the ring for that but there is a lot of people with more experience than me who have been linked with that one.”Clark won just three of his 33 games as Blackpool boss but his time at Bloomfield Road was blighted by off-field struggles.He admits he should never have taken on the job and hopes Football League chairmen look at his previous work with Birmingham and Huddersfield when considering whether to hand him another opportunity.“The next one has got to be right,” he said. “I made a mistake with my last choice, everyone could see that.“Hopefully, people will see past that and see the work I did in the previous two under different circumstances at Huddersfield and Birmingham and give me an opportunity.”last_img
