No new contract for Kenny Jackett as Jez Moxey backs him to be a Wolves success

Sport | Published:

Kenny Jackett will not be offered a new contract as Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey insisted the title-winning boss can achieve all his ambitions at Molineux.

Head coach Jackett's stock has never been higher after leading Wolves to the League One title in his first season in charge on a wave of a completely overhauled squad, five club records and a rebuilt relationship with fans.

But although Jackett's achievements are sure to have attracted attention, Moxey remains relaxed about the future, with no plans to improve the 52-year-old's one-year rolling deal.

"He feels this club has the potential to satisfy the ambitions he has," said Moxey.

"Anyone who's successful can become a target for bigger fish, but I've got no concerns in that regard because Ken has bought in hook, line and sinker into the project that is Wolves. And he understands the opportunity that's been presented to him to come here.

"He's totally sold on the project and we're only just starting. In the grand scheme of things, we know where we're trying to go with this club, and he understands the potential."

Moxey believes Wolves have found the most committed man to take the club forward.

"He lives and breathes the game," he said. "When you talk to Ken, you're going to talk football.

"That's what you want and that's how we are as a club; unless you're into it you're not going to get the Wolves way.


"I remember saying to Steve Morgan when he first came in: 'I almost expect you to call me at any time of the day or night, that's what we do here and is that OK?'

"He said 'of course, that's how I am as well', and that's how Ken is too."
