Job in football is a privilege - Coyle

26 November 2010 01:30
Owen Coyle insists he will remain grounded as Bolton scale the heights of the Barclays Premier League. The Glasgow-born manager believes it is a privilege to be earning a handsome living in the game. "If I hadn't had a career in football I would still have been paying a fiver to play five-a-side," the 44-year-old said as his fifth-placed team prepared to face Blackpool. "I know a real job is getting up at five, six in the morning and going out to work. A lot of people do. It might not be a job they are totally enamoured with but they have a family to look after and bills to pay. "So it is a bad day if you can't come to your work with a smile on your face knowing your job is in football. We are very fortunate. "Nobody gets more down than me when we lose games. I can be unbearable in those type of moments. But what I do recognise is that when we return to the training ground we are bubbly and ready to go again when something goes against you. I have always done it and always will."
