Salford City Reds set sights on Brian Noble

Salford City Reds owner Dr Marwan Koukash has confirmed that the club want Brian Noble as their next coach.

The Super League-strugglers sacked Phil Veivers earlier in the month, with the Australian losing four of his first five games in charge before receiving his marching orders.

And Noble, who won three Super League titles with the Bradford Bulls, is the ideal man to become the club's new head coach.

"I am after the best coach I can get my hands on," said Koukash, according to BBC Sport.

"Brian fits that bill and I would be honoured if we could work something out and Brian could become our coach."

The former Great Britain and Wigan coach has been out of a job since leaving Crusaders at the end of the 2010 season, but did hint that the club could enjoy success with a strong 'vision'.

"Salford are the nearly team. They need a vision and with that vision it [success] is achievable," he told BBC Radio 5Live.

"They've always been the nearly men but when you look at the cities of Salford and Manchester, it's massively important to the game that we're strong there."

Koukash certainly has big ambitions for the City Reds, having ruffled Super League feathers at the start of the season with offers for Wigan sensation Sam Tomkins and Warrington forward Adrian Morley - two of the biggest names in the game.

Neither came to fruition however, and Salford find themselves bottom of the table after seven games so far this season, with a trip to St Helens next on the agenda under temporary boss Alan Hunte.
