"I don't know whether I can be a father-figure to Paul or not," Knox told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. "Obviously, I've got that bit of experience and there will be a word here and there, because we'll all work together as far as that is concerned.

"He'll make mistakes like everyone else. I still make mistakes even at my age!

"But so far he's coped with that side of management very well. This is a bigger task, of course, but he's ready for it and he's really confident about it.

"He's got a terrific way with the players - I can see that already - so I'm sure he'll do really well, and we will try to help him in every way we possibly can.

"Mark Hughes did an excellent job during his time at the club and he's left some big shoes to fill.

"But Paul Ince is a lad with a big reputation as well, and I think he can fulfil everyone's expectations here."
