Gabor Gyepes: Feels he could still do a job at Championship level

The Hungarian defender has returned to his homeland after turning down a new contract at Fratton Park.

The 31-year-old centre-half is uncertain as to what the future will hold, with it important for him to make the right call for his family.

He admits he could be tempted to stay in Hungary, but feels he could still do a job at Championship level if the opportunity arose.

The former Wolves, Northampton and Cardiff man told caskfoci.hu: "My family is the most important thing for me so I wanted a contract that could guarantee if I took them to England that things would be the same as in the past.

"The club officials (at Portsmouth) understood me, but their offer wasn't suitable. I felt very good at Portsmouth, I played the whole season and the fans chose me as their best player, but I have to take care of my wife and kids too.

"I'm open to all possibilities. I'm in great shape and think I could be ready to play in the Championship. I'm full of strength and my body regenerates like when I was 18. I don't feel over 30.

"In Hungary, I'd love to play for my former club Ferencvaros. That is my dream, but they haven't contacted me yet."
