Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray sympathises with Ipswich Town’s plight – but he won’t be returning
TONY Mowbray has admitted he has had “no thoughts” about swapping a promotion push with Middlesbrough with rescuing his former club Ipswich Town from the depths of the Championship.
The Boro boss, who scored for Ipswich in their Wembley play-off final victory in 2000, would certainly be a popular choice among supporters and it is understood he has shown interest in the position before.
There have also been some reports that his assistant Mark Venus – another ex-Town star – might also be interested in returning to Portman Road.
But, when asked about the situation by the Middlesbrough Evening Gazette, Mowbray ruled himself out of the running.
He said: “Ipswich is a lovely club, I met my wife in Ipswich, I love the area and it’s a fabulous football club.

“It’s sad to see where they are at the moment. But I have no interest in the job and have had no thoughts about it. I’m quite happy to be ruled out of the reckoning.”
Following Saturday’s dismal 3-0 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday, all eyes are on owner Marcus Evans and chief executive Simon Clegg as they look to appoint the right man.
