Alan Curbishley: I would talk to Ipswich Town about managerial vacancy

ALAN Curbishley has admitted he would be interested in talking to Ipswich Town about replacing Paul Jewell.

The former Charlton and West Ham boss was installed as the favourite for the job as soon as Jewell departed by mutual consent on Wednesday lunch-time.

Speaking to Sky Sports today, he admitted that he would be interested in talking with the club.

He said: “I am amazed when you look at the betting and I am up there with the frontrunners. “Ipswich have been inundated with people who would like that job and I think they have a very important decision to make.

“The last two or three years have been tough as they have been in decline a little bit.

“They have to take their time, sift through the people that are available and come up with the right answer.

“I am available, obviously, and if they want to talk to me, I would talk to them.”
