CHAIRMAN John Berylson has hinted Millwall will not pursue out-of-contract Yeovil boss Gary Johnson because of his close relationship with their owner.
The Lions will begin interviewing candidates who are interested in succeeding Kenny Jackett on Friday, but Johnson, who lead the Glovers to promotion via the League One play-offs, is not on the shortlist.
Yeovil chairman John Fry was one of the first friends Berylson made in English football and whilst the Boston businessman refused to be drawn on which individuals will or won't be considered for the job, he said: "There are people we won't interview because of relationships that exist between clubs which we don't want to endanger.
"We've let some people go by who were interested because of that. We're working from a list of ten names and we'll work our way through them."
