Peterborough striker Aaron Mclean says he would be interested in continuing his coaching role with the club.

The 31-year-old is currently part of a three-man caretaker management team, led by Dave Robertson, despite only being on loan at Posh from Bradford.

"It was kind of sprung on me, but I'm loving it. I'd love to keep the management team together," he said.

"We work really well together, and all with the backroom staff, we have a tight-knit group."

Mclean, whose Bantams contract runs until 2016, continued to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Every day we sit down and talk about the week's training, how the lads are doing and how we can make training enjoyable for them."

The former Hull forward has scored once in 17 appearances in his second spell with the League One side, and the club have won five of their six games since Robertson, Mclean and Grant McCann took caretaker charge in late February.

Posh owner Darragh MacAnthony intends to allow that team to continue for the foreseeable future and, after 447 career league appearances, Mclean says he is ready to pass on his experiences to young players.

"There's no feeling like playing; that's what I've always wanted to do, but I'm really enjoying the management side of it.

"You get in the game to go and achieve things and play at the highest level you can.

"As you come to the end of your career, you start to look at how you can affect other people. I want to be the one that passes on my experiences - good and bad - and if that can make a difference then I've done my job."
