West Ham United legend Julian Dicks is returning to football.

Former Liverpool defender Dicks seems likely to return to football tomorrow by taking over as manager of non-league outfit Wivenhoe.

Dicks, 40, has been playing competitive golf in Spain for the last three years. He will return to Essex tomorrow to get his first taste of management in the Ridgeons Premier Division.

He told the News of the World: "I want to get back into football. I won't get paid, I just love football."
