Den to leave?

Dennis Wise
Dennis Wise has threatened to leave Millwall Football Club if chairman Theo Paphitis appoints someone else as manager.

Wise, who's caretakership ended on Saturday after the 3-1 away defeat to Norwich City, made the comments on Sky Sports yesterday stating that he would find it difficult to work with another manager having been in charge for a month.

The former Chelsea captain enjoyed something of a honeymoon period for the first three games, registering two wins and a draw, but things came crashing down at Carrow Road where he was criticised by some fans for playing a formation that didn't suit the players involved. Their argument is somewhat supported by the fact that The Lions were 3-0 by the break although Wise's selections were somewhat hampered by injuries to three of Millwall's first choice forward line.

Paphitis, meanwhile, is expected to name a new manager sometime this week. Whether Wise does get the nod remains to be seen.
