Paul Jewell named as Derby County new manager

The former Wigan manager Paul Jewell is the new Derby County coach.

Paul Jewell named as Derby County new manager Just two days after Derby sacked manager Billy Davies following a poor start, the chairman of the Premier League club Adam Pearson moved to nab unemployed Paul Jewell. Jewell, who had just declined an offer from Wigan, said that running Derby will be a real challenge, but when asked if he has hope of success he was firm: "Absolutely. If I don't believe it, if the players don't believe it, if the fans don't believe it we have no chance. It's going to be very difficult but I'm not here to wave the white flag. We're not adrift. Every challenge is a big challenge - be it Bradford, Sheffield Wednesday or Wigan."

 Derby County are currently sitting at the bottom of the Premier League table, with only one victory this season. Although relegation is still very much avoidable, at the British odds maker Bet 365 Derby remains the favorite to be relegated this season with odds 1/16, followed by Wigan with 8/11 and Birmingham with odds 5/4.
