Paul wants to see Blues triumph and says Club in safe hands with owner

Paul Jewell has urged other managers to take up the job at Portman Road and wants to see success at Ipswich Town.

The former Blues’ boss, who left the Club by mutual consent yesterday, also says that Town are in good hands with Marcus Evans in charge and describes him as one of the best owners or chairman he has ever worked with.

After saying his goodbyes to the Club staff this morning before speaking to Ipswich Player, Paul said: “I’m gutted it hasn’t worked out and even now looking around the place, it’s so frustrating that it hasn’t worked out.

“I could not have given anymore because I was desperate to see Portman Road packed and the Club being successful and it’s the right decision for me to leave.

“I’ve had a few managers on the phone to me yesterday and I told them, don’t hesitate as the job is now available because it’s a great football club and I really hope the Club goes on to great things because it deserves it. 

“Ipswich is also in very good hands with the owner. Marcus doesn’t interfere in any decisions football wise and is right up there with the best chairmen I have worked with – and I have worked with some really good ones.

“I know there might be some people out there knocking him but sometimes people need to be careful what they wish for. He’s 100 per cent committed to the Club and wants success for Ipswich as much as anyone.”
