Former Wolves skipper wants to manage his old club

Paul Ince has indicated he is ready to take the reins at Wolves in a last-ditch attempt to save them from relegation. Ince, 44, played at the club for four years towards the end of his illustrious career and helped them win promotion to the Premier League during his first season. Terry Connor has been appointed as interim Wolves manager until the end of the campaign but the former England skipper feels he could inspire them to safety. Wolves have taken just one point from six games since Connor replaced Mick McCarthy at the end of February and are still bottom of the table.

Experience

Ince has revealed he spoke to chief executive Jez Moxey about the role the day before Connor was appointed, and was surprised by the club's decision having managed Macclesfield, MK Dons, Blackburn and Notts County. "When I spoke to Jez about the situation, he said the job was about experience, but a day later they appointed Terry," Ince told the Express and Star. "With all due respect to TC (Connor), I've got more managerial experience than him. I've saved teams from relegation, I've got teams promoted and I've managed in the Premier League. "But the job at the moment is about motivating players and the fans and I feel I can do that. I feel I should be at the club now.
Massive
"If someone said: 'Take it for the last seven games' I'd do it, because it's Wolves and they're my club and they're only going one way at the moment." Ince added: "Wolves is a massive club. I went there when they hadn't been in the top division for 19 years and we won promotion at the first attempt. "I played there for four years so Wolves is a massive part of my life. "If I went there, they'd have nothing to lose. I'd tell the players the hard facts and say: 'Everyone thinks you're going down anyway' and try to get something extra out of them." Ince was interviewed for the Wolves job in 2006 before the appointment of McCarthy.
