'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jewell - I`m Fine

In an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, Paul Jewell revealed his reasons for leaving the managerial post at Wigan Athletic.

When asked about the state of his health, Jewell stated that he felt fine and in response to the fact that he`d fallen out with his wife, Paul Jewell, proving he`d lost none of his scouse humour, said 'does any one get along with their missus?`

The former manager went on to say that he`d taken the club as far as he could, but wanted to leave on a high.

He proclaimed that if the Latics had been relegated then he would have stayed at the helm.

Jewell told 5 Live that both Alan Curbishley and Gordon Strachan had phoned him and said that he`d done the right thing and to take a deserved rest.

When questioned further Jewell told the reporter that he felt his family, especially his sons, had suffered recently and that he wanted to spend some time with them, although he continued that his wife would probably see less of him now than when he was at work.

Jewell said that Wigan chairman Dave Whelan had been excellent and suggested he take a holiday at the chairman`s Barbados home to think things over.

But Jewell declared that he wanted to get it sorted quickly so that the new man would have time to prepare for the season ahead and suggested Chris Hutchings for the job.

Jewell revealed that Whelan agreed on Hutchings but stated that any time he (Jewell) wanted to come back to Wigan that Hutchings was made aware that the job was his.

Paul laughed at this and seemed in high spirits.

When asked what he missed about managing Jewell returned with 'nothing at the moment, but when I do start missing something that will be the time to return to management`.

When asked about the season Jewell said that the Phil Dowd incident was the turning point, but stated that Latics finished where they did was down to how good they were and nothing else.

Paul said that it was hard to tell the players and staff and that they all appeared to be shocked, but now he was looking forward to a good rest and a F.A. hearing tomorrow!
