FORMER Colchester United assistant manager, Micky Adams, has set his sights on becoming the new boss at Championship rivals Southampton.
Adams admitted yesterday that he is interested in succeeding ex-Colchester and Ipswich manager George Burley on the St Mary's hot-seat. Burley left the Saints to take on his new post as Scotland manager last week.
Adams began this season as No.2 to Geraint Williams at Layer Road. The 46-year-old left last month, to focus on finding a new job as a No. 1. Kit Symons has since taken over as the U's new assistant.

“Of course I want the Southampton job. It's not about sentiment, it's about can I do the job? I think if you look at my record, I can do the job,” said Adams.
“I'm delighted to be linked with it. Southampton is a club that I know well and have a lot of love for.”
