Kombouare left Parc des Princes in December 2011, with the ambitious Ligue 1 outfit keen to move in a different direction under a more high-profile manager.

The ex-Aberdeen defender offered enough, though, during his time in the French capital to attract interest from England.

He says he was approached by a number of teams looking for a new boss in 2012, but failed to land himself a Premier League post and ended up heading to the Middle East with Al-Hilal.

Kombouare, who currently finds himself out of work once more, told L'Equipe: "After my sacking from PSG I had a six-month break. Then I wanted to coach in the Premier League, rather than France.

"I had contacts but it was never sorted because I was always the second or third name on the list.

"The contacts? West Bromwich Albion, Swansea and Tottenham. I went to London to meet officials, but it never came to anything.

"I didn't want to join a small club or a small European league, so I finally chose Saudi Arabia.

"Since my departure from Al-Hilal I have had some very serious contacts, but the projects didn't really excite me. I want to manage clubs playing at the top of their league."
