Bolton Wanderers already lining up managerial candidates after relegation to League One



Bolton Chairman Ken Anderson has confirmed to the Daily Mail that the process has already begun in regards to appointing a new manager, after seeing the club relegated to League One at the weekend.


Anderson confirmed the club has already had over 50 applications for the manager’s post at the club, currently occupied by Jimmy Phillips, who is in temporary charge following the sacking of Neil Lennon.

It has been a truly terrible season for the Trotters, who founds themselves on the verge of going completely out business due to mounting debts, a winding up order, and terrible results on the pitch.

However, with the club seemingly rescued thanks to the takeover by the Sports Shield Group, Anderson is urging optimism and sticking together, as the Trotters embark on their first season in the third tier since 1993.

“It’s now time to look forward, not back. Whilst this continues to be an extremely challenging and difficult time for us all, it is imperative that we stick together and believe that we will come out the other side a better and stronger football clubAnderson said.
He added: “One of the most important decisions surrounds that of the club’s manager. That is something that is certainly high on our agenda and I personally have already had a high level of applicants for the job. We have had over 50 applications, which shows just in how much high regard our club is held.

That list has been whittled down to single figures and our process of interviewing the candidates is already well underway”

It is some encouraging news at least for the Bolton fans, who will be hoping the club can bring in the right man to lead them forward next season, and secure a return to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Phil Brown is the bookies favourite for the job, with comments from himself on Football League Tonight at the weekend further fuelling the rumour he is set to return to his former club.
