Sami Hyypia admits he would love to seal a return to Liverpool and manage the Reds at some point in his managerial career.

The Finn is currently in charge of second-placed Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, who take on Manchester United in the Champions League at BayArena on Wednesday night.

Hyypia won the FA Cup and League Cup twice during a 10-year spell at Anfield following a £2.6m move from Willem II in 1999, as well as helping the Reds lift their fifth European crown in 2005.

And the 40-year-old has his heart set on taking charge of Liverpool and his country Finland in the future.

Hyppia told Sky Sports: “Many people have asked me – ‘Where would I want to manage?’

There are two special places for me; I was at Liverpool for 10 years so that would be great.

“That doesn’t mean it’s a target – but it would be something special.

“And I come from Finland – and the Finnish national coach is the biggest job there. It’s also not a target but it would be great.”
