Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez wants to remain in charge of the South American side following their fourth-place finish at the World Cup.

The former AC Milan boss' contract expired following the 3-2 third-place play-off defeat to Germany on Saturday but the 63-year-old is keen to continue in the post he has held since 2006.

He told "I am nearer to the end of my career than the beginning, but I feel fine physically. It would interest me to continue with Uruguay, but it is not the time to be speaking about that."

He added: "I don't want to give the impression that I am demanding something. But my contract is at an end and I am no longer national team coach. Everything will depend on the offers that may be proposed."
