World Cup winner Marcel Desailly says he is warming up to take over the Stars coaching job one day.

He is currently pursuing a FIFA Pro License course which he will be completing this June to make him a full-blown accredited coach.

But the former AC Milan star believes at age 45, he has more years ahead in terms of coaching a club or a national team.

Desailly said at a press launch that he is at the moment focusing on the Samsung Corporate League, an initiative designed to keep members of the corporate world fit, which is gaining grounds in corporate circles.

‘I will finish my Pro License in June, and maybe I will consider taking up national team or a club coaching job in future. I am currently focusing on the corporate league, which I think is gaining grounds.

‘I am somebody when I put my hand to something I complete it, so let me concentrate on the corporate league first for now. Maybe in future I will consider the national team job, who knows?

‘But I must say the technical team of the Black Stars is doing well. They should put what happened in South Africa behind them.  It is an averagely young team and they need time to get there. They should rather be encouraged,’ Desailly said in an interview.

Desailly, who was the special guest for the Samsung Corporate football launch held last Thursday, has  been linked with the Stars coaching job on two occasions, but he pulled out in the first instance when the position was advertized, which he applied for alongside Serbian trainer Goran ‘Plavi’ Stevanovic  (eventual winner) and  Herbert Addo.
