JONATHAN Woodgate admits he is unsure if he has a future at Cherries when the club appoint a new manager.

Woodgate is currently in caretaker charge of the club following the dismissal of Jason Tindall as boss earlier this month.

Former Real Madrid and England star Woodgate only arrived at Cherries on February 1, as a coach working underneath Tindall on a contract until the end of the season, before two days later being thrust into the top job on an interim basis.

And he has impressed in his time in charge, winning three and drawing one of his four matches as caretaker boss, also guiding the club into the FA Cup quarter-finals along the way.

He will be in the dugout again for the trip to Queens Park Rangers tomorrow (3pm).

However, Cherries are now believed to be narrowing down their search for a new permanent successor to Tindall with the Daily Echo understanding the club have officially approached CF Montreal to ask for permission to speak with their boss Thierry Henry about the vacancy at Vitality Stadium.

Cherries are, at the time of writing, awaiting a response from the MLS club before hoping to proceed talks with the Arsenal legend.

Woodgate revealed he had still not been interviewed for the vacancy himself, despite his unbeaten run in interim charge.

And asked if he had been given any assurances he would still have a role at the club in some capacity regardless of who the new manager is, Woodgate said: "I’ve never had that conversation with any of the board at all to be honest with you. It’s just, ‘you’re the interim manager, take care of the games we want you to take care of’.

"I’ve done four games up to now and then I’ve got QPR. I’ll find out after QPR what happens. If someone gets announced, they might not, we just don’t know. So let’s see.

"I’m enjoying it, but when new coaches come in, you never know what staff they’re going to be bring in. So I know what it’s like in football.

"I’ve seen many staff leave football clubs, even when they’ve had good coaches. I know what it’s like in football. A new manager comes in, normally he brings his own staff.

"That’s the nature of the beast and that’s how it is."

Quizzed further on the managerial situation, Woodgate said: "I have no idea on timeframes, I really don’t. I have not a clue on timeframes.

"My objective is the game on Saturday against QPR. That’s my objective, that’s the only thing I’m thinking about.

"It’s up to the board when they think it’s right to announce a manager, but I have no idea on that.

"The board has got decisions to make on who they want the manager to be, there’s no getting away from that. We’ve actually bought them more time with how well the results have been.

"So let’s just see how the next week or so or few days go, I don’t honestly know when they’re going to make an announcement on who the manager is going to be.

"If I knew, I would be able to tell you. I’m just going off what the board have told me and that's the game I’m in charge of is the next one."
