CHANGE NOT THE DUNNE THING
JUST six months after arriving at Cambridge United as assistant manager, Joe Dunne is determined not to become a rabbit caught in the headlights after boss Richard Money was dismissed.
Money orchestrated the U’s return to the Football League after a nine-year absence and a superb FA Cup run last term, but that wasn’t enough to save him from the sack 16 games into the new season.
Former Colchester boss Dunne has taken over training this week and despite having his own philosophy, he is adamant that making big alterations to the U’s is not on his agenda before a permanent appointment is made.
“There’s absolutely no reason or cleverness in trying to rock the boat,” said the caretaker boss. “When the news came through it was important to remain as professional as possible and get on the training ground.
“They’re paid professionals and this is a situation that will happen again. We’ve already seen some more managers depart their job since.”
