Carlton legend Anthony Koutoufides would consider a move back to a club in a coaching role.
The former captain and premiership player is filled with knowledge and insights about the game and that he is more than willing to pass them on to the club’s youths.
For the past few years, the Blues have been labelled to be in a “rebuilding” phase which has ultimately seen them miss finals since 2013.
The lack of rebuilding has also resulted in many personnel changes including the most recent sacking of coach Brendon Bolton only weeks ago.
The club has tried to enlist new strategies and tactics and are looking anywhere to gain an edge over their opponents.
Koutoufides could be one of them.
When asked on SEN’s The Sporting Capital whether a part-time coaching role would interest him, the dual All-Australian replied: “If I was asked, I would always look at it.”
“At the end of the day, I love the footy club and I just want to see it successful.
“As I walked in when I was 14 and then on the senior list when I was 17, it (Carlton) had the most incredible culture, power and success.
“If they’re going to ask, I would look at it, depending on the commitment of it all. To get involved to help the young kids and see the club successful again … I’m not going to say no, but of course I’ll have to look at the details.”
The Blues have also enlisted another Carlton great in Greg ‘Diesel’ Williams to help the club become more successful.
The dual Brownlow medallist accepted the invitation to take up a personalised coaching role to work with Patrick Cripps, Paddy Dow and the likes.
