Dickov is a former Maine Road favourite.
âI think whatâs happened is fantastic,â he told the Manchester Evening News. âI know people knock them for the money they have spent but there are a lot of good people who have been there a long time who deserve it.
âI am also delighted for the fans because, even when I played, we put them through some hellish times. They are a fantastic bunch of supporters. Just phenomenal. I am over the moon for them and for the likes of (kitman) Les Chapman and (managerâs PA) Claire Marsden, the people behind the scenes.
âPeople donât necessarily recognise what they do.â
