Gary Megson is preparing to take charge of Bolton for the first time, claiming it was a job he could not resist.
And he is now intent in winning over a sceptical public, starting with the home game against Aston Villa.
After walking out on Leicester only six weeks into the role to join Bolton, he said: "This was purely and simply an opportunity that came up that I wanted to take.
"It was a chance to work in the Premier League, that's all.
"Bolton is a top club with a terrific stadium, a great training ground and a very talented squad.
"Joining them is no reflection on Leicester or the supporters there. I wish them every success.
"But Bolton is where I want to work. It is a massive opportunity for me."
