Former Great Britain scrum half Bobbie Goulding wants the vacant head coach’s role at Salford.
Goulding, 41, has been out of work since his contract as boss of the France national team was not renewed.
Salford, and new owner Dr Marwan Koukash, are on the look out for a new head coach following the sacking of Phil Veivers, with Alan Hunte set to take charge of his second game as interim coach this weekend.
Goulding said: “I want the job and I think I’m the fans’ favourite, I think that’s been said on Twitter.
“I’m ready to go, I’m ready to be the best coach this country has seen. I’ve got everything in my armour to do it.”
Goulding, who won 17 caps for Great Britain in a distinguished playing career, was previously coach of Rochdale twice.
He played for Wigan, Leeds, Widnes, St Helens, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Salford, Leigh, Rochdale and Eastern Suburbs.
