The compliments for Dave Jones just keep on coming. This time it's Paul Ince singing Wolves' former managers praise ahead of their crunch match with Jones' Cardiff City.
It was Jones that convinced Paul Ince that he and Denis Irwin were waht Wolves needed to gian promotion to The premiership, something Incey has'nt forgotten.
Speaking to The evening Mail he said.
'I was considering retiring and it was only speaking to Dave that persuaded me to come back and go for another year,' said Ince. 'And three-and-a-half years down the line I'm still going!
'Of course I thank him a lot for that, for just considering me, and I think it's a move that worked out well for both parties. I got another chance to play in the Premiership and at the same time helped the club get back where they belong.
'I might not agree with the way things went towards the end of Dave's time at Wolves,' added Ince. 'I felt that especially in his last game at Gillingham, when they were down to 10 men and we were 1-0 down, to put me on for the last two minutes showed a lack of respect.
'But at the end of the day I'm a big man with broad shoulders and I've had a lot of worse things done to me. There was Liverpool and problems with Gerard Houllier. Then it was Kevin Keegan at England telling me I wasn't playing against Germany at Wembley when we lost 1-0 and Gareth Southgate was playing in the holding midfield role I'd occupied for 10 years.
'All you can do is just get on with it, and Dave Jones was terrific for me - he's a terrific man and I'm looking forward to seeing him. It's going to be a big game for a variety of reasons, and is certainly one which should motivate everyone.'
