Watford approach Woan for No.2 role

Watford approach Woan for No.2 role

Portsmouth have granted Watford permission to speak to their former Nottingham Forest midfielder Ian Woan about the assistant manager's role.

The 43 year-old has been at Portsmouth for four years and was previously U18's coach at Fratton Park but Sean Dyche has targeted his 'best friend' to be his new assistant.

Speaking to the Watford Observer, Pompey boss Steve Cotterill confirmed the news:

"To be fair to Watford, they have done it all the right way and made an approach for him to go and work alongside Sean Dyche.

"To be honest, when Sean Dyche got the job I knew this one would be coming because they are really close.'

Woan spent the bulk of his career with Nottingham Forest where he and Dyche played together.

Cheshire-born Woan eventually finished playing in 2004 with the Syracuse Salty Dogs, a now defunct American side where he played with Luton number nine, Matthew Barnes-Homer!

HAVE YOUR SAY!

Do 'old mates' worry you as a partnership?

Remember him as having a good left foot, but was a lazy player in being a team player, but if Dyche wants him and I guess you need someone you can trust, then it's his call.

Indeed. I worry about the 'buddies' thing but hopefully Woan is experienced enough make a valuable contribution.
