Croatia boss Slaven Bilic has told BBC Sport his dream is to manage in the Premier League.

Bilic, who is preparing his side to face England at Wembley on Wednesday, has led his country to qualification for Euro 2008.

But he told BBC One's Football Focus: "I dream of being a club manager in the Premier League.

"I'm not thinking about it right now, but if it happens it happens. Of course I would love it."

As a player, Bilic spent four years in England with West Ham and then Everton.

The 39-year-old took over as Croatia boss in July 2006 after Zlatko Kranjcar failed to get the team into the second round of the World Cup.

606: DEBATE

Croatia will finish top of Group E if they avoid a 2-0 defeat against England or a loss by more than three goals.

They were unbeaten in this campaign until Saturday's 2-0 defeat in Macedonia.
