Alloa striker Michael Chopra confirms interest in vacant manager’s post



Alloa striker Michael Chopra admits he is interested in becoming the new Wasps manager.

The Championship basement side are seeking a replacement after Danny Lennon resigned from the post on Monday evening.

Alloa chairman Mike Mulraney has already admitted to being inundated with applicants, including notes of interest from as far a field as the Southern Hemisphere.

Chopra is keen to take his first steps into management


One-time former Newcastle, Sunderland and Cardiff striker Chopra joined the part-timers in March and helped keep Alloa in the Championship with a goal in their relegation play-off victory over Brechin City.

The 31-year-old, who has played under the likes of the late Sir Bobby Robson, Roy Keane and Mick McCarthy during his career, said: “Yes I’m interested. I want to try and help the club as much as possible.

“I’ve worked under some good managers and learned a lot from them. I’m sure I could pass on my experience to the players I’m playing with.

“I’ll speak to the chairman and take it from there.”

Speaking to the BBC, Chopra added: “I know what gets said in the dressing room – I can see it and I hear it. I know what the lads want and I’m pretty sure I could do a good job.”

Jimmy Calderwood, Jimmy Nicholl and Allan Moore have also been linked with the post.
