The Football League Paper - - INSIDE - Paddy von Behr

NEWLY-IN­STALLED Fleet­wood Town boss Steven Press­ley is con­fi­dent he has found the club to marry up with his am­bi­tions.

The for­mer Coven­try City boss was handed the job ear­lier this week af­ter Graham Alexan­der was given his march­ing or­ders at the end of last month.

And Press­ley has set his sights on build­ing from the firm foun­da­tions al­ready in place at High­bury Sta­dium.

“There were many things that at­tracted me to this job,” he said. “Firstly the am­bi­tion of the football club and se­condly the sta­bil­ity and the in­fra­struc­ture.

“When you come here you can feel the drive and the mo­ti­va­tion. It has grown dra­mat­i­cally.

“They have a fan­tas­tic sta­dium and in­cred­i­ble train­ing base which is fit for the Premier League. It’s a won­der­ful club with great am­bi­tion.

“A man­ager has to fit the football club and I think the fit is good. I have the same thoughts and the same pro­gres­sion as the chair­man.

“There will be a lot of hard work as we are cur­rently in a poor predica­ment in terms of league po­si­tion­ing, but that gives us a scope to re­ally de­velop the play­ers.”
