Six bosses struggle to replace Steve Bruce as Hull manager
Steve Bruce departure leaves Hull City in search of new manager to take charge of their Team as season approaches.below are the six potential contenders over the job.
Bruce’s assistant has been appointed as caretaker manager, the starting point for many successful job applications over the years. Previously worked under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and is the early favourite. Long tipped as a potential number one, but yet to take the plunge.
His previous jobs ended disappointingly at Sunderland and Ipswich, but potential was shown and has remained involved in the game with backroom roles at Aston Villa and with the Republic of Ireland. Hard to guess how he might dovetail with the unpredictable Allam family.
Debate remains over whether he is more of a coach than a manager, but the former England boss had enjoyed good times with Middlesbrough and FC Twente as well as less distinguished stints with the national team, Derby and Newcastle. Hull is also close to his York roots and he may find a Premier League job hard to turn down regardless of the circumstances.
Giggs is now looking for a managerial position after three years of assisting David Moyes and Louis van Gaal at Manchester United. After almost 30 years as player and coach at United, his first job away from Old Trafford will be eagerly watched.
The highly-rated manager of MK Dons has seemed destined for bigger things for some time, although he has so far resisted the temptation to leave. After six years in Milton Keynes and being unable to prevent relegation from the Championship, the time could be now.
Warnock could hardly be a long-term choice but he is regularly linked with jobs in the Yorkshire area and appears to relish awkward challenges like this one. Knows how to operate in the transfer market but has limited success in the top-flight to make it productive.
