Jackett resigns after 6 years as Millwall manager

Kenny Jackett has resigned as Millwall manager after almost six
years in charge of the second-tier English club.

Jackett joined Millwall in 2007 and was the sixth
longest-serving manager in English football behind Alex Ferguson,
Arsene Wenger, David Moyes, Tony Pulis and Exeter’s Paul
Tisdale.

Jackett led Millwall to the FA Cup semifinals this season but
four defeats in the last five games saw the club finish just two
points above the relegation zone in the Championship.

He says in a statement, ”I personally feel the time is right
for a new challenge, and also for a new manager to come into
Millwall with fresh ideas, to take the club forward towards its
long term goal of reaching the Premier League.”

Millwall last played top-division football in 1990.
