Lee: I would only play for John

FORMER England international Rob Lee has quit Wycombe Wanderers following their decision to sack manager John Gorman.

The 40-year-old midfield maestro says he has played his last match for the Blues and is now weighing up his options.

He is the second member of the squad, which featured in the play-off semi-finals, to turn their back on the club since Gorman's departure.

He follows 25-year-old right back Danny Senda who was having talks with Luton Town this week.

Lee, who won 21 England caps, said: "The only reason I came to Wycombe was John Gorman and he is not the manager any more.

After what John has been through I think they have been too hasty but no-one knows all the reasons.

"I would only want to play for John at Wycombe.

"I enjoyed my time there. I really liked the people and liked the way we played football."

Lee felt the club were too hasty in axing a manager who took the club on a 21-match unbeaten run at the start of the season, before the campaign was derailed by the death of his wife Myra and the death of midfielder Mark Philo in a car crash.

Lee said: "After what John has been through I think they have been too hasty but no-one knows all the reasons. If the board think he's not fit, that's their decision.

"He took the compassionate leave on the understanding that he would be coming back and it was a total shock to us when we were told he wasn't.

"I saw him a couple of days before he was relieved of his duties and there didn't seem to be anything wrong to me. I was expecting him to come back."

Lee has already attracted interest from a couple of other British clubs and will use the next three weeks to decide whether to play on or hang his boots up and turn his attentions to management or coaching.

But he added that he would not be applying for the Wycombe job.
