Due to the job that Aidy Boothroyd has performed at Northampton it wouldn't be a surprise in the least if other clubs showed an interest in him this summer.
Since his arrival some 18-months ago the club have gone from League Two strugglers to League Two promotion candidates with a play off final being played next weekend.
David Cardoza, as he told BBC Look East, "understands how football works" so is preparing himself for others to look to tempt Boothroyd away from Sixfields.
He feels that the boss wants to remain where he is and hopes he does but would leave a decision to him if an offer came, he said: 'If a big club comes along there will be a conversation to be had. But from everything he tells me he loves it here and I hope he stays for a long time.
'I wouldn't be surprised. At the end of the day it will come down to what Aidy wants. He's telling me he wants to stay, he loves the club, loves the fans. He sees real potential here and wants to take us as far as we can.
'He wants to get us to the Championship and see where we go from there. To have gone from fourth or fifth bottom to this in a year has been amazing.
'There's so much stuff Aidy brings, in terms of the feel good factor for the staff as well as the footballers. It's been transformed.'
Success brings interest, however if The Cobblers continue to move forward you'd like to think that Boothroyd would move forward with them.
After all he has found out previously that "the grass isn't always greener!"
