Roland Nilsson has opened the door to a Sheffield Wednesday return as their hunt for a manager hots up.
The Owls are searching for a new boss following the decision to sack Tony Pulis from his position one week ago after just 10 matches in charge of the club.
Since then Dejphon Chansiri has been working tirelessly to replace the Welshman.
Several names have been linked with the position, including Owls’ favourite Nilsson.
The 57-year-old played over 150 times for Wednesday during the 1990s and was regarded as a real fans’ favourite during his time in South Yorkshire.
Now with Swedish giants IFK Göteborg, Nilsson has refused to rule out a return to the club at some point, but believes that now isn’t the right time to make that move.
The big festive Sheffield Wednesday quiz: Can you get 20/20?
Speaking to The Sheffield Star, Nilsson said: “There have always been rumours.
“You never know what is going to happen in your training or coaching career.
“It’s one of those, but of course, when you’ve been to a club like Sheffield Wednesday, you always want to be there. You want to coach a club like that.
“In the future I’d love to come back and coach Sheffield Wednesday but at the moment I’m enjoying life with IFK.”
Sheffield Wednesday need to appoint a new boss quickly.
The second half of the season is going to be absolutely massive for the Owls as they look to move themselves away from the bottom end of the table.
Making that change needs to be promptly in the club are to kick on and adapt to life under a new regime.
