LONDON (REUTERS) - After a glittering career spent at European giants Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan, former Dutch international Edgar Davids has dropped to the basement of English football to join fourth tier side Barnet.

The tough-tackling midfielder has agreed to become joint head coach of the north London side and has expressed an interest in pulling on his boots again after a two-year hiatus.

"I'm happy to explore my possibilities and share my knowledge and experience with Barnet Football Club. I am very excited about the challenge ahead," Davids said in a statement on the club's website.

Davids, 39, last played for Crystal Palace in the English Championship in 2010 after picking up honours throughout his career, which also featured spells at Inter Milan, Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspur.
