Ivan Cleary has no plans to jump off Tigers’ bus, will commit future to club on Saturday
DAVID RICCIO, EXCLUSIVE, The Daily Telegraph

THEY’RE the words every Wests Tigers fan has been waiting to hear.
Ivan Cleary is on the bus.

The Wests Tigers coach will on Saturday declare his unequivocal commitment to the club, ruling out any suggestion of an immediate return to Penrith to coach his son Nathan.

Wests Tigers coach Ivan Cleary has no intentions of leaving the club.

Breaking his silence following Penrith’s sacking of coach Anthony Griffin on Monday, the Panthers first-choice replacement will quash five days of uncertainty felt by every Tigers supporter who feared that the 47-year-old would angle for a release from his current contract.

Cleary will explain at press conference scheduled for 9.45am at Wests Leagues Club on Saturday morning that he will be fulfilling the remainder of his two-and-half year deal with the Tigers.

The news will put an end to all speculation linking Cleary back to Penrith and in-turn, force the Panthers into directing their target elsewhere.

Cleary had been linked with Penrith to replace sacked coach Anthony Griffin.

The Saturday Telegraph has learned that Cleary has found the week emotionally-taxing.
However, he’s looking forward to voicing his commitment to the Tigers, showing respect to the club he has helped re-build and focusing on the club’s vital clash with Canberra on Sunday afternoon.

A man of integrity, Cleary is most uncomfortable with the way his character has been questioned — given he never once asked the Tigers for a formal release from his current contract.

What he won’t deny is that the lure of coaching his son Nathan in the NRL remains a genuine, and shared ambition between father and son, however it will only occur when the timing for both parties is right.

Cleary plans to see out his entire contract with the Tigers.

Wests Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe had been justifiably defiant about Cleary remaining with the club from the moment word broke on Monday that it was the Tigers mentor, who the Panthers wanted to replace Griffin with.

The Tigers went as far as to assess their legal options.

“We’re not going to be pushed aside, bullied or rail roaded by anyone,’’ Pascoe said.
“I’m bitterly disappointed that a rival club has decided that it’s appropriate practice to try and poach a coach with two-and-a-half years left on his contract.

Coaching son Nathan was an obvious enticement for Ivan.

“This club and myself have to make decisions that are in the best interests of the Wests Tigers first and foremost, our fans our members and our stakeholders, and giving our head coach to a rival club is not a decision that is in the best interest of the fans or the stakeholders.”

A strategic move by the Panthers, it was designed so Griffin could be replace with a proven NRL coach, but primarily to ensure Penrith’s star halfback Nathan Cleary - off contract at the end of 2019 - remained at the foot of the mountains to play under his father.

Where Nathan signs his next contract and how long for, could prove a crucial precursor to Cleary’s coaching future.

First and foremost, the Tigers have one last chance to keep their slim finals hopes alive against the Raiders.

Cleary’s commitment could prove the perfect tonic the entire Tigers playing group needs.

Interesting reading, if Nathan re-signs with Panthers the talk about Ivan to Panthers will continue for two more years.

Unless we extend Ivan we are still in a crap position as far as signing players to longer term deals goes.
The only way out for us now is to extend Ivan’s contract by at least 2 more years.
Otherwise we have to let him go.

I don’t think this is a good result for us.

Big Deal !
The Panthers have pulled back their offer with the fear of legal action so Ivan looks after himself by drawing a pay cheque for 2 years from us before joining his dream team.
We are the suckers.

If scenario 1 was to prevail.
I would ask for Villiame kikua and RCG.
Not Neg.
And have Penrith pay the first 2 years of the next coach’s salary.
That’s if they really want the Clearys to reunite.
And the dreaming goes on.

Maybe Ivan has watched the way Gus has carried on this week & has changed his mind about putting himself thru that again .

I’d say the only way Ivan is going back to Penrith is if he has been promised Gus won’t be around anymore. Gus just doesn’t know it yet.
That’s why 2021 is probably the time for his return.

Typical Telegraph, 2 bob each way.

Unsure how one publication cannot run consistent stories.

Professor on Fox reporting Gus has approached AGGRO to coach Penriff he's the only mindless puppet left and would be a good fit at the club

I got emotional reading that pfftt.

He sussed the reaction from the general public all week and figured this is the safest way to keep his reputation in check.

It don't matter this is the best play the Panthers can do " we have no problems waiting 2 years " it falls back on the Tigers in keeping a bloke who is going to go in 2 years time anyway .
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

The same publication that puts Malcolm Turnbull up on a pedestal every day - fake news.
