Carlos Edwards: ‘Managers silence leaves a bitter taste’



Ex Ipswich Town captain Carlos Edwards has thanked the supporters for his time at Portman Road, but has also said that Mick McCarthy has left his departure feeling slightly sour.

The 35-year-old completed a move to Millwall yesterday after spending the latter stages of this season on loan at The New Den.

But after issuing a ‘thank you’ to the Town supporters, the Trinidad & Tobago International made a negative comment towards his old manager.

Edwards said: “I just really want to say thank you to the Ipswich fans because they showed me so much support – on and off the pitch.

“I’ll always have great memories from my time at Ipswich. I hope the fans have good memories of me too. I certainly always gave my best every time I pulled on the shirt.”

But when asked about not receiving a new deal with Ipswich, Edwards said: “I’m actually still waiting for someone to say something to me.

“The manager sent me out on loan and I had a word with him then. He then sent me a text saying ‘all the best’ before my first game for Millwall. That was the last I heard from him.

“He should have tried to talk to me at the end of the season, even if it was just a five minute chat for him to say ‘this is the situation’.

“It has left a slightly bitter taste in my mouth because I expected a lot more from the gaffer really.”

Edwards spent five years at Ipswich after moving from Sunderland in 2009, scoring nine goals in 166 appearances.
