Barnet boss Giuliano Grazioli savours career highlight

Grazioli picked up seven points from his five games in charge

Barnet caretaker manager Giuliano Grazioli says that keeping Barnet in the Football League surpasses any of his achievements as a player.

The ex-Bees striker, 36, saw his side retain their league status with a win over Port Vale on the final day.

He told BBC London 94.9: "Winning promotion was great, winning golden boots, and playing at Old Trafford was fantastic but this surpasses it all.

"The players have been brilliant, no one gave us a chance."

Grazioli took over in the wake of Martin Allen's controversial move to Notts County and won two and drew one of his five matches in charge.

Asked whether he would like the job on a full-time basis, he added: "We'll have to see, I'm sure the chairman has ideas already. Maybe I'm a little inexperienced. We can't let this happen again as it's happened two years in a row.

"I've enjoyed every minute. I would love to stay in the set-up here."
