Colchester United start the selection process for their next manager on Monday, formally interviewing just five on a list of more than 30 candidates.
Chief Executive, Steve Bradshaw told Dram 100 FM last night that some "world-renowned" names have declared private interest in the post, alongside the less-fancied non-league boss, Julian Dicks and thus far non-committal Paul Buckle.
"It`s been an interesting week - it wasn`t what I was expecting but the guys have been brilliant, the fans have been brilliant the players have done great and the staff have really rallied together - it`s something I`m very proud of," said Bradshaw last night.
He had already told the Evening Gazette this week that the club will interview just five potentials during final-round interviews.
As he mentioned on Tuesday, there has indeed been a remarkable about of interest in the job, although ex-Colchester player, Teddy Sheringham, instantly pulled out of the running yesterday.
"I wanted to share what we are doing with the fans. At the moment, we`ve had some fantastic applications already, over thirty of them. Some of them are absolutely brilliant, from literarily world-renowned people," Bradshaw added.
It is also possible that caretaker Joe Dunne is a contender, after he hinted earlier in the week that senior management was his long-term ambition. He remains in charge the club`s league game away at MK Dons tomorrow.
