Jewell takes over at Portman Road
Tuesday 11 January 2011
Ipswich yesterday announced that Paul Jewell has signed a two-and-a-half year contract as their new manager and the former Derby and Wigan manager then claimed he knows how to lead teams to promotion.
"I have what it takes to get sides promoted," he said. "There are no guarantees but I can promise that there will be no stone unturned in guiding this club to promotion, which is the long-term target.
"Confidence is at a low right now but, hopefully, we can consolidate. As long as we can see progress and consolidate, that is the immediate aim."
Jewell will be in the stands at Portman Road tomorrow, when Ipswich play Arsenal in the first leg of their Carling Cup semi-final, and will take charge the next day.
