Jackett Must Concentrate on Football
Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett has had his role spelled out to him by the club chief executive Jez Moxey who feels that the manager’s role has become too vast
Wolves’ first ever head coach Kenny Jackett has had his role spelled out to him by the club chief executive Jez Moxey who feels that the manager’s role has become too vast in modern football.
Wolves are facing up to life in League One next season after back to back relegations following a three year stint in the Premier League where the club upset the Unibet betting odds on a regular basis by escaping the drop and, for Moxey, it is clear what is required of the new man at the helm. “The head coach’s job, first and foremost, is to win football matches and he should be doing everything he possibly can to ensure his team, he and everybody else is prepared to win that next game,” Moxey said.
Whilst there is no denying that each of the four managers that Wolves have had over the last season and a half were trying to win football matches, Moxey feels that, because of the varies demands of the role, they were spreading themselves too thinly. ” We think that in the modern day of dealing with the media, sponsors, recruitment, academy, the board etc, a guy can’t be in three places at once,” Moxey, who has been at the club since 2000, said. “Too many managers try and be in three places at once and fail,” he added.
Football managers are a notoriously single minded breed and, having been top dog at Millwall for six years, Jackett may find it difficult to work in an environment where he doesn’t have total control of all off-field activities and his reign at Wolves could be as brief as some of his predecessors’. If, however, Moxey is proved correct and the head coach role allows Jackett to focus all of his attention on to results on the field then Wolves could be in for a successful season and a swift return to the Championship.
