Pornstar backs Chris Powell to be the next Derby County managerby Jack Kitson / 10 October 2016, 14:14
Derby County have so far remained shtum on who they will bring in to replace Nigel Pearson, but while opinion is currently split on caretaker boss Chris Powell (see poll below), the 38-year-old has the backing of a...pornstar...
Derby County fans, would you like Chris Powell as your next permanent manager? #dcfc— The Sack Race (@thesackrace) October 10, 2016
Yes. You read that correctly.
Derby nut Keiran Lee has starred in a multitude of adult movies and even has his todger insured for a million dollars.
In an interview with the Derby Telegraph the 32-year-old, who plays for Vinnie Jones' Hollywood All-Stars, has revealed that Powell is the man he would choose to lead the Rams following a rotten start to the season under Pearson, who registered only six points from nine league games in charge.
The former Derby rail worker now lives over in Los Angeles but has targetted the crunch clash with rivals Nottingham Forest (December 11) as the next match he'll jet over to see live.
Like Derby, Forest have struggled this term, with the neighbours hovering dangerously above the relegation zone.
But, while Forest have been hammering in the goals, Derby have suffered from a lack of penetration in attack, netting just three goals under Pearson.
However, since caretaker Powell has taken over the reins the club have accumulated four points, netting three times in the process - already equalling their meagre tally under Pearson.
Following a lengthy internal investigation Pearson's departure was finally confirmed on Saturday, but while the bookmakers have yet to release any odds, it's widely expected that Powell will be handed the job until the end of the season.
