Cotterill on Pompey’s wanted list

Cotterill led the Magpies to promotion to League One after losing

just one game in 18 and, because he was only on a short-term deal

at Meadow Lane, has been linked with a host of vacant managerial

jobs. Andronikou believes Cotterill’s accomplishments, which have

included four promotions, could lift the disillusioned Pompey

players following their relegation from the Premier League. “He

(Cotterill) is one of eight or nine managers that have been

recommended to us. He was recommended by a third party,” Andronikou

told the Nottingham Evening Post. “His CV precedes him. He is the

sort of motivator that our players need to take them forward. “The

fact he is out of contract at the end of the month is not a factor.

We are looking for the right individual, not at their

availability.”
