LEE CLARK last night confirmed he’s still had no contact about the Leicester City job and emphasised the loyalties which strongly underpin his management of Town.
The 39-year-old – whose side extended their unbeaten League I run to 41 matches with Saturday’s 1-0 win at Yeovil to keep them second – remains widely linked with the Championship club, who last week parted company with Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Speculation has included a possible Clark-Kevin Keegan ‘dream team’ at the Foxes, but the Town boss insists he’s heard nothing.
“I’m coming up to three years here in December and myself and my young family get treated unbelievably well at the football club by the people I work for and the people I work with,” said Clark. “I can’t speak about whether there is anything in these stories because I’ve had no contact, but if I did the first person I would pick up the phone to within seconds would be Dean Hoyle, to explain the situation.
“He has become a good friend as well as my boss, and I’ve got too much respect for him not to do it that way – but there are many factors before we even reach that stage because this is just speculation and it might all be worthless.
“The only thing I can guarantee at the moment is that I’m Huddersfield Town manager, I love my job, I love the group of players I work with and I love the staff at the club – not just my backroom team but all the people behind the scenes at the club.
“I know I am a lucky man as manager to have a man like Dean Hoyle backing me – and that might not be so easy to walk away from, even if these stories were proved to be right.”
