Yallop: Not been contacted by Ipswich

(CP) -- Canadian national team coach Frank Yallop, who made 326 appearances as a player for Ipswich Town between 1983 and 1996, says he has not heard anything from the English soccer team in its current search for a manager.

The Football Championship side is looking for a successor to veteran manager Joe Royle, under whom the club finished 15th last season.

Former Ipswich captain Tony Mowbray, now managing Hibernian, has ruled himself out of contention for the job, according to the Ipswich website.

Ipswich was also denied permission to speak to Colchester manager Phil Parkinson. Former club captain Terry Butcher took himself out of the running when he signed a deal with Sydney FC.

Yallop said he had not been contacted by the English side, but saw his name mentioned among possible candidates in English reports.

"I was flattered, actually," he said Friday from Vancouver.

Asked if he would be interested in the job, Yallop said: "At some point in my career, I'd love to be able to go over to England to coach or manage. At this point, no. Not right away."

Ipswich chairman David Sheepshanks has said he would like a new manager in place by the end of June.

"Ipswich is a large club in the Championship," Sheepshanks was quoted in Ipswich's Evening Star. "There are many fans and I'm sure it will be attractive for many people."

Yallop, 42, is a former manager of the year in Major League Soccer with the San Jose Earthquakes.

Named Canadian coach in December 2003, Yallop was inducted into the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame last year.

Ipswich is home to Canadian defender Jason DeVos, who captains the side, and midfielder Jaime Peters. In addition to Yallop, Canadian alumni at the club include former goalkeeper Craig Forrest.
