Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has ruled out a move for ex-Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill, despite calls for his appointment, reports the Peterborough Telegraph.
Following the departure of Graham Westley last weekend, fans have been discussing their ideal candidates for the role with Cotterill being a popular choice among supporters.
Due to his presence on Twitter, MacAnthony was asked by a lot of supporters about a potential move for the 51-year-old.
A Bristol City fan asked the Posh chairman if he would be tempted to approach Cotterill to which MacAnthony replied “Nope he’s not hot on youth I think so probably not great fit for us although superb manager.”
Cotterill has had a successful career to date in the Football League and in the 2014/15 season, he guided Bristol City to the League One title and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Peterborough currently sit 14th in the third tier after a disappointing campaign and Westley was their second managerial casualty of the season after the club parted company with Dave Robertson earlier in the season.
Peterborough fans…What do you make of the news? Would Cotterill have been a good appointment for the club? Who would you like to see in charge? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
