KEITH GETS THE GIG AT CURLE-ISLE UNITED!
KEITH CURLE is under no illusions what is required having fought off over 80 applicants to take over at basement club Carlisle.
Curle, above, has previously been in charge of Mansfield, Chester, Torquay and Notts County and takes over the Cumbrians following Graham Kavanagh’s exit.
The 50-year-old has signed a contract until the end of next season with Carlisle three points off safety before yesterday’s clash with Mansfield, but Curle is looking forward to the challenge.
Curle said:“I’m professional, disciplined and organised and I’ve got a good eye for emerging talent. I know how the game needs to be played to win points, which is vitally important.
“All I’ve asked from the players is honesty and for them to give me everything they’ve got, not only on the field, but off the field as well. That’s with anything they think I need to know about.
“I’ve got a huge amount of desire in me and I am determined to make this a success.
“I know there will be some positive and some negative reactions to my appointment from the fans, but I know that if they give me the opportunity, and they come into it with an open mind, then they will enjoy watching their team.”
