Ball was placed in temporary charge following Paolo Di Canio‚Äôs sacking and, with the club still weighing up its options, will remain at the helm for Saturday‚Äôs game against Manchester United.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve worked with Bally a lot and he‚Äôd certainly be the one person who would love the job more than anyone,‚ÄĚ Colback told the Evening Chronicle.
‚ÄúThe fans love him too. The decision is obviously nothing to do with me, but while he‚Äôs here, he‚Äôll get everyone‚Äôs support and commitment.
‚ÄúI think it‚Äôs obvious to see he‚Äôs got the attributes of a manager. As a player, he showed why he was captain of teams. He‚Äôs a leader and everyone gets fired up.
‚ÄúEveryone respects him and I think that‚Äôs the most important thing.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs made a big difference since he‚Äôs come in and the players really want to do well for him, the fans and the club.‚ÄĚ
