It's Me Or The Manager

It's Me Or The Manager

Efe Sodje has pulled no punches when talking about his own future with the club.

Speaking to the Bury Times after captaining the side in what many assumed would be the 40 year olds final match at the club, the defender blasted.

'It's me or the manager. So long as the manager is here then that's the last game for me for Bury. He called me yesterday and just said to me that he was going to start me and he wanted me to be captain because it was going to be my last game. I said thank you very much for that, but you know me, captain or not captain, I'm always going to be a Bury fan.'

Sodje says that Bury used to be a family club but that was lost at the start of the season and he believes we desperately need to bring that back.

The Bury Times will be carrying more of the interview in coming days, but clearly things aren't right behind the scenes and the blame is going in all directions.
