Chris Powell: AFC Wimbledon job link is flattering but a non-starter

Chris Powell has ruled himself out of contention for the AFC Wimbledon manager’s job.

The former Charlton Athletic, Huddersfield Town and Southend United boss is one of the betting favourites for the role.

But Powell is head of academy coaching at his boyhood club Tottenham and is also part of the coaching set up with England.

He told the South London Press: “I’m flattered to be linked with the job but it is a non-starter because I’m very happy in the roles I’ve got at Spurs and the FA.

“AFC Wimbledon have a bright future on the horizon and in the immediate future need to make sure they keep their League One status. I’m a South London boy, I grew up near Plough Lane and always look out for the club. But the stories are totally a non-starter with regards to my position.

“I’d just like to apologise for anyone who put money on me!”
