The Hull City fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening, are discussing reports that an experienced manager has applied for their vacant managerial position.
According to a report on HITC Sport, former England manager Steve McClaren has applied for to be the Premier League sides new manager.
McClaren was relieved of his duties as Newcastle manager with nine games of the Premier League season, after playing a major part in the North East giants relegation from England’s top flight.
The experienced manager is one of a number of leading contenders being considered for the role left vacant by Steve Bruce, following a disagreement with club’s board over the budget for the upcoming season.
The 55-year-old McClaren is still based in North Yorkshire and would love another crack at testing himself in the Premier League.
It will remain to be seen as to whether or not the hierarchy at the KCOM stadium will be willing to risk appointing a manager, who hasn’t exactly covered himself in glory in recent seasons, but it could well be the chance he needs to prove the doubters wrong.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern thinks this would be a poor appointment for the Tigers, and think the club should look to appoint someone like Roberto Martinez or Roberto Mancini!
Hull fans…. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see McClaren at the KCOM Stadium? Let us know below!
