Dragons job 'too soon' for Ferguson
Darren Ferguson
Ferguson: Linked with Wrexham manager's job
Former Wrexham assistant boss Kevin Reeves has played down the possibility of Darren Ferguson taking control of the club.

Reeves ended a 12-year association with Wrexham on Monday when he and manager Brian Flynn left the club.

Coach Joey Jones has taken temporary charge at the Racecourse Ground, but the former Liverpool full-back insists he does not want the job full-time.

"I'm not interested in managing - never have been," said Jones.

"I enjoy taking the reserves in mid-week and helping youngsters come through, but managing Wrexham Football Club is not for me."

Speculation is rife that Ferguson is preparing to put himself forward for the manager's role.

He is without doubt one of the best midfielders in the Second Division

But Reeves thinks the midfielder is playing too well to become boss.

"Daz is 29, he wants to continue playing, and at the moment he's playing as well as he ever has.

"For the two years that he has been with Wrexham he has been absolutely fantastic.

"He is without doubt one of the best midfielders in the Second Division.

"Although there are some young managers about at the moment - Brian Flynn was only 31 when he took over at Wrexham - I think Darren enjoys playing too much.

"He's very fit and healthy and still has a lot left in him."

Ferguson, along with midfielder Kevin Russell and captain Brian Carey, will help Jones coach the Wrexham first-team in the short term.
