Football: Cardiff caretaker Kerslake has no interest in top job
CARDIFF (REUTERS) - Cardiff City caretaker manager David Kerslake said he had no plans to enter the running for the permanent role after seeing his side squander a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Sunderland in the Premier League on Saturday, Dec 28, 2013.
Kerslake, who took charge of the team following the controversial sacking of Malky Mackay by club owner Vincent Tan on Friday, watched his team ease into a 2-0 lead before Sunderland scored twice in the dying minutes to snatch a point.
"With all respect, I wouldn't be interested in this job. I love being a coach, that's where I see myself," Kerslake told reporters.
"I've been a coach now for pushing 10 years. I love what I do, I love being on the grass with the players so I'm happy doing that." Kerslake and first-team coach Joe McBride were put in charge after Mackay was fired by Tan following weeks of speculation about his job.
