Ipswich Town takeover rumours will have no impact on new manager Paul Cook
New Ipswich Town manager Paul Cook has described reports regarding the club being the target of a takeover as 'not my business'.
However, whatever is going on behind the scenes at Portman Road, Cook has insisted he will just focus on achieving the aim of getting Ipswich promoted back to the Championship.
He told the club's website: “I’m aware of the rumours but that’s not my business, that’s down to Marcus.
“I wouldn’t have taken the job if I had any concerns. I’ve had some good conversations with Marcus already. I’m looking forward to working with him and I know what he wants from me.
“It’s clear that he has a determination to take this club back to where we all want it to be and as manager, it’s my job spec to win football matches.
“There is a very good squad of players here and my objective is to try my best to help the club win promotion this season. It will be a big challenge but it’s a challenge we must take head on and together and that will be reiterated to the staff and the players today.
“I’m really looking forward to getting going now. I want to get integrated into the club as soon as possible.”
Cook, who was appointed on Tuesday, is set to officially be unveiled as the new Ipswich boss at a press conference this afternoon.
