Carl himself was also very happy to be returning to the Racecourse:
“I’m absolutely delighted to be back and sitting here inside the Racecourse, it does send shivers down my spine.
“I can’t wait to assemble the squad for next season, start on pre-season and then move onto the first home game in front of the fans.
“I’ve been with the club before, it wasn’t as long I wanted it to be, but that is all water under the bridge. I’m looking at the future now and I’m really excited about it.
“I’ve spoken with Dean, but from my first time here working with him, he was a leader on the pitch – the manager on the pitch!
“Now he is the manager and we share the same values, beliefs and work ethic as each other – we want the same thing.”
