Saunders Trying To Coax Legend Out Of Retirement

Interesting news to be filed under 'really?' is that Dean Saunders is making a serious push to get Tugay out of retirement and join his Wrexham side as the former Rovers coach looks for re-inforcement outside of the transfer window,

Rovers legend Tugay retired at the end of last season after 8 glorious years at Ewood Park and is now taking his coaching badges in an attempt to make a serious move into coaching (Note to Sam - Keep an eye out for when he is qualified).

But the Turk would be free to move back to a playing role as and when he deems fit as he is not bound by the transfer window as he is not registered to play for anybody - now it up to Dean Saunders, who worked with Tugay under Graeme Souness to convince Tugay Wrexham is the place to be.

A good story to kick off the day.

I dont mean this in a patronising way but would Tugay consider this?
Mikey D
If he could have a player/coach role maybe he could be tempted. A decent level to learn his trade. Saying that I dont see it happening.
fransavarese
Surely Notts County seems more realistic.
LeeCookFan
wasn't there rumours about this happening a few months back? I don't see Tugay giving up badges with city to go anywhere really, unless he misses playing too much and goes the player/coach route
retroflair31
Come again? I was pretty sure Tugay being at City was just a bit of speculation? Otherwise I'm pretty sure this and the Notts County attempts would be ridiculous if he was already in a job??
fransavarese
p.s. I know he was "translated" as saying he would join butI've yet to see anything official
fransavarese
Still could do with the legend around Ewood, look at the response he got against West Ham, our biggest cheer! Can't see this move materialising.
roversman
Wont happen, He will do his badges then back at ewood where he belongs.
rover23
I am fairly confident that when/if Rovers came calling he would more or less drop what he was doing and come to Ewood. One of the very few who would as well.
Mikey D
so what happened to the coaching job at Cit£h?
merlin
He is definitely at Man City doin his badges... i don't know the details though?
retroflair31
He's not on the coaching staff with Man City though is he? Maybe Big Sam could ask him to come back and play for us again!!
