George Burley has said he will apply to become Ipswich Town manager, 10 years after he was sacked by the club. Burley was boss at Portman Road for eight years, taking the Championship club to the Premier League and Uefa Cup qualification.

"I think I'm the most successful manager there in the last 30 years. The passion's still there. Naturally I'd be interested," he told BBC Radio Suffolk.

Paul Jewell left as Town boss on Wednesday with the club bottom of the Championship and winless in 11 games.

He added: "My life's been around Ipswich all my football career since I was 15 years old. I'm moving back to Suffolk soon. When you've got it in your blood it's something you don't forget."
