Coyle shrugs off Judas taunts
27 Jan 2010 - 08:54:59
Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle dismissed the angry reception he received from the visiting fans after the Trotters beat his former club Burnley 1-0 at the Reebok Stadium.
Chants of 'Judas' could be heard from the Clarets faithful, as they saw their side beaten by a Lee Chung-Yong strike.
Afterwards Coyle refused to rise to the bait, saying: "Perhaps they should call me Moses, as I led them out of the wilderness.
"Until my dying day, I wish the club nothing but the best.
"This was more emotional than any other game I have been involved in. I left a unique club and know the passion that surrounds the place.
"Burnley are special and I will always hold them in the highest esteem.
"But they have the smallest budget in the league and they did not want to move at the same pace as me.
"The only person who knows the full story is me and I maintain I conducted myself properly."
