Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has said that he will hold talks with the club’s hierarchy at the end of March to discuss his long-term future at the club.
At the end of the month, Darren Ferguson and his assistant Gavin Strachan are set to sit down with the Peterborough United board to discuss their long-term future at the club.
The decision to sack Steve Evans as manager in January has not had the impact on results that both chairman Darragh MacAnthony and Posh fans would’ve been hoping for. Evans was sacked with the club sat in 6th place, while the club are sat in 7th tied on points Doncaster, who sit in the final play-off place with a game in hand.
However, MacAnthony hasn’t hidden the fact that he is hoping he can keep Ferguson on a long-term deal, as they look to make a plan for the future by returning to some of the club’s previous values of buying young talents from lower league clubs and investing in the club’s academy.
Now, speaking to the Peterborough Telegraph, Ferguson has revealed when talks are set to take place.
“We’re planning to sit down with the owners and with Barry Fry at the end of the month,” Ferguson said.
“Our future won’t depend on results this season as it’s a long-term project the club is planning.
“When I came in I had to make a quick decision. It was a quick turnaround so we said we’d sign until the end of the season and then make another decision.
“I’m enjoying being back. The players have had to get used to different styles of training session and also used to the way I want to play. They seem to be enjoying it as well even if we haven’t had as many wins as we’d have liked. There have been reasons for that though.”
Despite the club’s poor form, a win over Wimbledon on Tuesday night could see them climb back into the League One play-off spots with nine games remaining. Wimbledon sit at the bottom of the table but have lost only once in their last five league games.
