HUDDLESTONE TARGETS NEW CLUB
Former Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County and Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestonehas targeted a new club in time for the new season which starts in two months time. Tom Huddlestone talked about his intention to get a new club ahead of the new season while he was on the ‘trackandballpodcast’.
English midfielder Huddlestonewas with Derby County until last summer when his contract at the club expired. He could not agree a new deal with the Rams last summer and that led to his exit. The 34-year-old player was not part of the Derby County squad that flirted with relegation for the most part of the season.
The Rams started the season with Dutch tactician Philip Cocu as their manager and ended the same season with a rookie manager in Wayne Rooney. Ex-Dutch national team player Cocu led Derby County to the bottom of the just concluded English Championship table after the first 13 games of the season.
Cocu led the Rams to record just six points from those 13 games and the club had no choice but to show him the door thus paving the way for the advent of Rooney as a football manager. Rooney was given the Derby County job on an interim capacity and his performance prompted the club to hand him the job permanently. While he was the interim manager, Rooney led the Rams out of the relegation zone and the Manchester United legend was able to maintain the position of his team out of the relegation zone until the end of the season.
