Kenny Jackett leaves Millwallby Jack Kitson / 07 May 2013, 11:05Tweet
Kenny Jackett has decided to leave Millwall after almost six seasons in charge. The popular manager was the longest serving boss in the Championship but has now opted to resign from his post, despite pleas from the club to stay.
Millwall only just survived the dreaded drop last season after finishing two points above the relegation zone. The south London club won only one of their final nine matches but managed to cling on and in the end came in 20th place. However, they did enjoy a very impressive FA Cup run where they reached the semi-finals. Jackett leaves the club having won 103 of his 307 games in charge.
Attention will now turn to his successor at the Den, with Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe amongst the contenders in the Next Millwall Manager Odds Market. Other names in the frame include Dean Saunders, who was sacked by Wolves today (Tuesday), Owen Coyle and Darren Ferguson.
