Hernan Crespo admits he loved his times as a player in England and would like the opportunity to coach there too.

Hernan Crespo spent a total of five years at Chelsea. His Premier League career was somewhat on and off, with spells at the club, and then loans away.

However, he still managed to add a Premier League title to his collection of trophies, along with 25 goals in 73 appearances.

The Argentine legend is currently the manager of the Argentinian Superliga side Defensa. Although much like in his playing days, he is planning on plying his trade in multiple countries.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, he admits he likes the idea of following in the footsteps of some of his previous managers.

He said:

 “I was very happy playing in England, going to training, very happy with the fans.” 

“That is why today as a manager I would like to be able to re-live that. I admire the Premier League and even the Championship, too.”

“Being a coach is beautiful. Being beside Jose [Mourinho] at Chelsea and Inter, I learned that the manager is 360 degrees.”

“How to deal with journalists, doctors, players, backroom staff, the atmosphere, fans, with everything. These three, Mourinho, Bielsa, and Carlo Ancelotti opened up my mind to certain things.”
