'Thanks, But No Thanks' - Arnold
Managerless Millwall are still without a club after Central Coast manager Graham Arnold reportedly turned down a three year contract offer from the Championship side, meaning he has rejected too English clubs in the space of a week.
Arnold, who led Central Coast to the A-League title last season, turned down an offer from League One side Sheffield United only a week ago, labelling their offer 'pre-historic'. And now the Australian has apparently rejected Millwall in favour of staying in his homeland Australia.
Arnold's agent John Mackay released a statement earlier today, saying, "We can reveal Graham has rejected an approach from Millwall Football Club. Graham seriously thought about this offer but decided it would be best to stay in Australia where his family are settled," the agent said on his behalf.
Millwall will now continue a search for a new manager. The clock is ticking for the London outfit with the Championship season starting relatively soon. Gary Neville is now odds on favourite to land the job but the latest in the rumor mill is that the club are holding talks with former Portsmouth, Blackpool and Blackburn boss Michael Appleton.
