English football club Crystal Palace head coach Alan Pardew has expressed his desire to manage some of the bigger clubs and even the national team.

Pardew led Palace to a top-half finish last season and boasts a remarkable win ratio since taking over the reins in January. But despite his side sitting incredibly seventh in the English Premier League (EPL), above the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, the 54-year-old says he wants bigger jobs in football.

“It is an ambition of mine. I won’t ever let it rest until I’m done, to get to one of the big clubs, because I want a bigger percentage chance of winning,” Pardew was quoted as saying by dailymail.co.uk on Saturday.

“Why wouldn’t I? I envy those managers that are there, I really do. I really envy (Liverpool’s) Brendan (Rodgers) and (Chelsea’s) Jose (Mourinho) and everybody else. But that doesn’t stop my determination to try and turn them over,” he added.

The 54-year-old former Newcastle United coach continued: “I think the England job is a job that’s unique in that it brings a certain pressure. I’ve experienced some of that at the clubs I’d been at. If Roy (Hodgson), and after Roy somebody else, if it ever turned up at my doorstep I would say to the FA, I’ll have one tournament.

“Let me have one tournament — win, lose or bust. And my money ends when that ends. I’d be happy with that.”
