Former Ipswich Town defender Ivan Campo wants Bolton job
FORMER Ipswich Town defender Ivan Campo has declared his interest in becoming the next Bolton manager following Owen Coyle’s dismissal yesterday.
The Spaniard, who made 17 appearances for Town in the 2008/09 season, has taken to Twitter to urge Bolton chairman Phil Gartside to consider him for the position.
Coyle was relieved of his duties on Tuesday with the Championship side in 18th position following three wins in 10 league games this campaign.
Mick McCarthy, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and former Blues manager Roy Keane are reportedly in the frame to take over, but Campo, a Trotters fan favourite after making 194 appearances in six years, has thrown his hat into the ring.
He posted on his official Twitter page: “After to know what its happening in the BOLTON FAMILY i want to say that of corse i would like to help to the club.
“I love very special moment in my life. Big SAM. Nolan. Davo. JJ Okocha. Jussy , Djorksef, Hierro...... And all FANS OF BWCF. My FAMILY.
“Only i need recive a call OF PHIL GARTSIDE and i will GO to BOLTON INMEDITALY TO HELP TO THE CLUB WITH MY EXPERIENCE.
