Bolton boss Coyle: I could still be with Burnley if I had followed heart

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle insists he would still be in charge at Burnley if he had let his heart rule over his head.

Coyle returns to Turf Moor for their Carling Cup tie.

"If it was just down to emotion, and emotion alone, I would never have left Burnley," Coyle said.

"But I had to look at the bigger picture and I made a footballing decision because of the infrastructure and everything else at Bolton.

"I'd been here as a player and I knew everything that goes with that as well, and that was how it was made."
