Cameron Jerome has offered his verdict on Paul Cook’s arrival at Ipswich Town as the Tractor Boys look to win promotion from League One this season.
The men from Portman Road have won three games in a row in the league but saw Paul Lambert leave the club at the weekend with things behind the scenes seemingly far from harmonious.
Form is improving, though, and Paul Cook is a manager that likes to bring a positive atmosphere to his players, with him showing exactly how well he can motivate at Wigan last season despite their financial woes.
With that in mind, then, there will be hope that Cook can take Ipswich up into the Championship as early as this season.
For Jerome, too, there’s a chance they can do that but it is going to be hard.
He said via EFL on Quest:
“Paul Cook comes in, he’s highly experienced, achieving three promotions with three different clubs.
“He’s got his work cut out but he’ll be doing his best to catch up to those playoff places.”
Rush Football’s take
Paul Cook has done some great work in his career so far with the jobs at Portsmouth and Wigan Athletic particularly eye-catching.
He is likely going to get Ipswich playing attractive football and with the talent that they have at the club that could prove to be a recipe for success.
