Nigel Reo-Coker: “It was never anything personal to leave Bolton."

I literally have no idea why they're embracing. - Michael Steele

The midfielder that left Bolton Wanderers immediately following relegation in hopes of a swift return to the Premier League with another club (but failed in that aspect) spoke out about his decision to leave the men in white.

I wish it was something more conclusive than "nothing personal." It's the same old "it's not you, it's me" speech when your significant other breaks up with you and you're left with a whole lot of nothing to show for it. It's not really a major point anymore or one that Bolton Wanderers fans should be overly concerned about but it would be nice to know why Nigel Reo-Coker decided to leave Bolton Wanderers.

Speaking to the East Anglian Daily Times, NRC opened up about his decision to leave the Trotters after their fall to the Championship:

"It was never anything personal to leave Bolton.

The club is a terrific club with a great set-up while the fans were great to me. It was a personal decision on why I left and I still think it was the right decision.

The type of character I am means it is not just about your footballing experiences, it is about life experience. Things you learn in football, you must take into life.

I had one or two options, I could have said my career is over and go here, there and everywhere. Or I could say I am in this situation, it is a new challenge, something fresh for me and something I am looking forward to."

Reo-Coker is currently at Ipswich Town on a short-term deal.
