Former Bolton captain Kevin Davies believes any chance of him returning to the club in a coaching capacity has passed, after recently moving away from the area.

Davies, who represented Wanderers between 2003 and 2013, earned legendary status during his time with the Trotters before being cast aside by former manager Dougie Freedman in the latter stages of the 2012/13 campaign.

After a spell in charge at non-league Southport FC came to an end in April, the 41-year-old is available for employment but he shrugged off suggestions from supporters that he could one day return to the University of Bolton Stadium.

"I would loved to have helped the club in some capacity after retirement," Davies posted on Twitter.

"I did all my qualifications and was ready to work and learn my trade. My passion for that club was unrivalled, I am now living in Dorset so that ship has sailed.

"Also some of the players in my era should have been recognised better for the service they gave to the club.

"They have so much to give but always found it difficult for one reason or another to reconnect with the club which is a shame I guess."
