However fans are hoping that he will continue his contract even after the end of the season. The team owner says he must bring the team into the Premier League as soon as he can.
They are ready to give him a chance to return the team to the old paths. When he arrived at the club he was new to the country, the division and to the club and team.
The amount of games clearly left him shell-shocked and he repeatedly said that he did not get any time to train players at all, and the weather and volume of games coming thick and fast meant that they could just hold meetings and then head to the next game.
