Millwall’s managerial target Gareth Ainsworth could be set to leave his current club Wycombe Wanderers, after their potential new chairman has revealed he has a succession plan in place for his departure.
Gareth Ainsworth is a man in high-demand in the Football League right now.
In that time he’s guided the club to League Two promotion and this season, has transformed his squad into title contenders in League One.
American businessman Rob Couhig is a current shareholder at Wycombe, though he’s in the process of becoming the club’s chairman very soon.
He gave an update on Ainsworth’s position at the club today, saying:
“He and I have a great relationship and I hope it will continue – we understand each other very well.
“Should the day comes when he decides to move on, we will consult with the best people in the business, consult with the fans, consult with others and make a decision on how to go forward.
“It would be my hope that it would be someone similar to Gareth in the sense that they would have the discipline, the intellect and the ability to guide these lads forward.”
Ainsworth has patiently built his managerial pedigree at Wycombe, and is deserved of a new opportunity.
Sunderland is perhaps a more lucrative opening than Wycombe and Millwall, but it’s also one that carries a whole lot of luggage.
Millwall may be a better suit for Ainsworth, who’s been in and out of the rumour mill all season and with Couhig having it in mind that he could leave, hope at Millwall might be that they are able to get him in.
