Skipper looks for Blues to produce coaches and managers from within
Luke Chambers has said that he’d love to be Town boss one day and says the Club could start producing managers from within.
The skipper, who is sidelined with injury at the moment, has been involved in caretaker manager Bryan Klug’s support team and the insight he has received has reiterated his desire to move into management one day.
“Bryan and the coaches have had me in all the meetings and it’s certainly whetted my appetite going forward,” writes Chambo in his column in Saturday’s matchday programme.
"I’ve said it before but having a look at the job from the ‘inside’, it’s made my mind up completely that I want to test myself as a manager.
“I’d love to have that opportunity here one day. It’s a great club. I’d like to think I have given good service here as a player and I want that to continue. It’s also a great place to gain experience and progress as a coach.
“We have an Academy here whose job it is to produce players for the first-team, why not have the structure in place to develop managers here as well.
“We have some really good young coaches here already. You’ve also got people working here like Kieron Dyer and Titus Bramble who have had long careers in the game.
“Cole Skuse is another who wants to progress and move into coaching so why not have that avenue where players can move from playing to coaching here when the time is right. The Club could be in a position to bring through its own managers in time.”
