Former Ipswich Town manager Paul Hurst reflects on his time at Portman Road
Paul Hurst was the man asked to usher in a new era at Ipswich following Mick McCarthy’s departure but his reign was cut short in October and the club has continued to struggle since. Adam Bate caught up with Hurst to find out where it went wrong…
Paul Hurst’s 2018 began with his Shrewsbury side on course for promotion. Two trips to Wembley followed before Ipswich came calling in May. But the year ended with him out of work after being sacked by the Sky Bet Championship club just 14 league games into the job.
He cuts a philosophical figure now as he reflects on his time in Suffolk. After taking advice from his peers, he soon took the chance to get away from things in Gran Canaria and there has been some media work too. But Hurst’s ongoing drive is highlighted by the LMA seminar he attended soon after leaving Ipswich.
