Barnet chairman Tony Kleanthous will leave it up to Martin Allen as to whether he decided to stay at The Hive after leading the Bees to promotion.
It is Allen's fourth spell with the club with two of those being short-term appointments towards the end of seasons.
And the Bees chief is happy to let his manager decide his own future after guiding Barnet back to the Football League as Conference champions.
A delighted Kleanthous said at the edge of The Hive pitch: “Martin has an open contract. He comes and goes when he likes. You can't tie him down.
“I learnt a long time ago you just have a revolving door and you let him come and go when he pleases. As long as we have successes when he's here it's good.
“We were meant to be. He's like a girlfriend you can never get rid of. I first employed Martin when he finished his football career as a coach.
“We're never big enough for Martin. Hopefully we can be big enough for Martin now.”
In order to keep Allen, Kleathous will happily let his manager tell him what needs to be done for Barnet to challenge for promotion to League One.
He added: “Whatever Martin wants to do we'll do. He makes those decisions, I just pay for them.
“We intend to go through League Two. We've only just begun. It's always been the plan but now we've got the vehicle to drive with.
“I'm bored of the Football League, let's talk about the Premier League.”
