Pompey mourn passing of Hall of Famer

Have your say

Lee Clark has ruled out leaving Huddersfield.

The sought-after boss has been linked with both Pompey and Leicester in the past week.

In a recent The News poll, Blues fans voted for him as their number-one choice to replace Steve Cotterill.

Clark has caught the eye at Huddersfield, taking them to the play-off final last season.

They are currently second in League One.

But he has insisted he will not be walking out for a Championship job.

He said: ‘I’m not applying for any job - I’m a Huddersfield manager working for a fantastic man and a fantastic board.

‘Whether it’s just to fill areas in newspapers, I don’t know, but there has certainly not been any contact with me or my representatives.

‘I have never had a phone call from Dean (Hoyle, the Huddersfield chairman) or (chief executive) Nigel Clibbens, to say that they’ve had contact.

‘I’m here - I’ve never heard anything about any other job and that’s the way it is.

‘It’s the same when my players get linked and you ask me. I think everyone should be proud inside the club if that’s the case because it means we’re doing something right.’
