Wise Dampens Leeds Rumour

Last updated : 25 October 2005 By Kevin Markey
Wise says in the Guardian that he wants to stay out of football management until the end of the season at least.

Although the Southampton midfielder, who resigned as Millwall's player-manager at the end of last season, has a close association with the Leeds chairman Ken Bates, he said: "The manager in me is buried at the moment, I'm at Southampton to play football. That's what I want to do for the year. I didn't play myself too much at Millwall. When you are manager, it is very difficult to do both things."
