Graham Alexander would appear to be on Bury's wish list to become their new player-manager.
Who says so? Well none other than our friend Alan Nixon writing in the Daily Mirror.
Bury lost their manager, Alan Knill to Scunthorpe back in March but that didn't seem to affect morale at Gigg Lane.
Under caretaker, youth coach Richie Barker they won the first six of their eight remaining matches in succession to finish in the League 2 runners up spot thus gaining promotion to League 1 after nine long years in the bottom tier of the Football League. Had they not faltered in their last two games,picking up only one point, they may well have caught champions, Chesterfield.
Despite Barker's success though, it looks like he will not be rewarded with the permanent job.
Bury are understood to have drawn up a short-list of potential managers and it is understood Grezza could be one of those in the frame. It had been thought former Carlisle boss Neil McDonald was the favourite to take up the vacancy but that speculation all seems to have gone quiet.
Would Grezza be interested in such a role? Well he is thought to want to get on the first rung of the managerial ladder and at 39, he is unlikely to see much action as a player for Burnley at Championship level and he may feel his coaching role at Turf Moor has also been limited.
Alexander has been a loyal servant to Burnley and of course recently achieved his 1000th career appearance for club and country after coming on as a sub in the Clarets recent 2-1 home win against Swansea City. However Grezza this season, despite being club captain has spent most of the time on the bench and has made few starts. If he is not thinking of hanging up his boots just yet, he might get more playing opportunity with a League 1 side and of course it would also be a great move for him if he was also manager at a club not expecting promotion next season.
