Dickov is a former Maine Road favourite.
â€śI think whatâ€™s happened is fantastic,â€ť he told the Manchester Evening News. â€śI 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.
â€śI 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 (managerâ€™s PA) Claire Marsden, the people behind the scenes.
â€śPeople donâ€™t necessarily recognise what they do.â€ť
