West Ham No2 McDonald explains turning down Carlisle

West Ham United No2 Neil McDonald says he's happy at the Boleyn Ground.

McDonald has confirmed he spoke with Carlisle United about the manager's job.

He told whufc.com: "I got a call from the club asking for permission to speak to me. I spoke to them and went to one of their games which caused a bit of mayhem. I'm in a great position here at West Ham, I've got a great job here at West Ham. I love what I do. My family still live up north but I'm totally committed down here.

"I want to get back into management of course, but I'll bide my time. As I said, I've got a great job that I love. We've had a successful three or four years so long may that continue."
