"I'm Only Coming On Board If I Have Total Control"

Cleary has complete control at Tigers

"I'm Only Coming On Board If I Have Total Control"

The Triple M Grill Team's Matty Johns believes the number one thing new West Tigers coach Ivan Cleary needs to do this season is convince James Tedesco to resign.

"He can't be held over a barrel by Tedesco and the management" Matty Johns says.

Matty Johns also revealed that Cleary originally walked away from the Tigers deal.

"He went to the club and said 'I'm only coming on bard if I have total control' to which they said 'no we don't work that way' and he walked away, and they've come back to him."

MG relayed a Grill Team listeners pleasure at having Ivan Cleary appointed saying

"It's the first time they've seen a coach in the last 5 or 6 years actually smile at a question that's been delivered to him."
