Southgate 90 Mins From The Sack - Curbishley Linked With Boro!

Last updated : 30 December 2008 By Boro Mad
To add to Southgate's woe ... former West Ham boss Alan Curbishley says he is holding out for a return to Premier League management ... and reports from London suggest Southgate could bve 90 minutes away from the sack.

The former Hammers and Charlton chief has been out of work since walking away from Upton Park in September.

He has been strongly linked with the vacant posts at Nottingham Forest and Derby, with both having recently parted with their managers, but with Boro on a nose-dive he is said to be holding out for "the big one".

Curbishley: "No disrespect to the clubs out there at the moment, but I've been a Premier League manager for the last 10 years and that's where I want to go back to if I can.

"We'll have to see what happens.

"Once you've been in the Premier League, if you talk to anyone about it, that's where you want to be and I think I have earned the right to go back in there if there is an opportunity for me."
