Gulls to turn to Kubik

24 Nov 2006 - 12:43:41

Torquay United chairman Chris Roberts has revealed that former Czech Republic international Lubos Kubik will be named as the Gulls' new manager on Monday.

Current boss Ian Atkins is still to decide whether to remain at Plainmoor after being offered a scouting/recruitment/youth coach role.

He told the Herald Express: "The chairman has offered me the role, and knows that I've got the fingers on the buttons to achieve a good structure at the club. This role can help improve the football side and take it forward.

"This is what the chairman wants me to do, because of my knowledge, because of my contacts, and because I've done it before - it's nothing new to me.

"This is a lovely club, with good supporters and good people, but there hasn't been a structure in place for a long while.

"It's a challenge, but being a manager has never been the be all and end all for me. I've had success as a manager before, and I've got a good record with players. But for now, I'll just continue what I've been doing and we'll wait and see."

Kubik enjoyed a varied playing career before retiring in 2001, with Slavia Prague, Fiorentina, Metz and Nurnberg among his clubs.
