KENNY Jackett has admitted he resigned as Millwall manager last month because he felt he had taken the club as far he could.
Jackett was unveiled as the new head coach of Wolves on Monday and spoke in depth for the first time since leaving The Den of his decision to quit
He said: "I had been there an awful long time and I felt I needed a new challenge, I think I had done my work there and it was the right move for myself.
"I am very proud of my achievements at Millwall, we'd been to Wembley three times in five years. When I went in we were fourth from bottom of League One and I'm pleased and proud to leave them in a lot better place than I picked them up.
"It was an overall gut feeling, if you like, that a new challenge was required and I had done my work there. It wasn't a decision I had taken lightly and was something which had built up, there has to be a conclusion.
"That decision was made towards the end of what had been, in many ways, a tough season. From reaching Wembley and getting through to that FA Cup semi-final, which did a considerable amount of good for the club as well as the bad publicity for the trouble.
"It left us with an incredibly busy period towards the end of the season and a big challenging task to make sure once again Millwall had kept their Championship status, which I was very proud going into a fourth season at a club where you get around 10-12,000 supporters."
