Daughter's Facebook page backs Gunn for Norwich job
A teenage girl has launched an internet campaign to make her dad the manager of a professional football club.
Bryan Gunn, 45, was appointed caretaker boss of Coca-Cola Championship side Norwich City last week following the sacking of Glenn Roeder.
On Saturday, he guided the relegation-haunted outfit, known as the Canaries, to a 4-0 victory in his first game in charge against Barnsley.
Now it has emerged his daughter, Melissa, 17, has launched a "Bryan Gunn for manager" campaign on the social networking site Facebook.
Nearly 1,500 people logged on to offer their support within days of the page being set up.
Many fans think Gunn - a former Norwich goalkeeper who has since held various positions at the club - would be an ideal boss.
"He loves this club - and being manager would be the icing on the cake of an extraordinary career at Norwich City and would fulfil many of the ambitions and dreams which he has always kept close to him," Melissa wrote on the Facebook page.
"I never expected to get so many hits so I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support."
She said she created the page "as a way to support my dad and show how much I believe he is right for the job".
Gunn made more than 400 appearances in a 15-year career as a professional footballer.
He spent the majority of his time with Norwich but also played under Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson at Aberdeen.
Gunn revealed that he received a "good luck" message from Sir Alex before Saturday's match.
