’Go for it!’... Paul Jewell’s advice to anyone considering Ipswich Town job

PAUL Jewell has told prospective Ipswich Town candidates that they should not hesitate in applying for his former job.

The ex-Blues boss was back at Portman Road for one final time this morning, giving his last interview to the club’s Ipswich Player.

And showing his affinity to the club, he admitted that his successor would be a lucky man.

He said: “I 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 (Evans) 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.”

Reflecting on his time at Town, Jewell added: “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.
