Breaking; Former Portsmouth boss installed to take over Bradford City after Mark Hughes sack”

A former Porstmouth manager has been tipped to take over a League Two club.

After Mark Hughes’ resignation, a former Portsmouth manager is the favorite to take over at Bradford City.

Bradford have had a slow start to the season, winning only three of their first 11 games, losing four and drawing four. Hughes led the Bantams to a playoff spot last season, but he hasn’t been able to generate the same level of enthusiasm this season, and he has now paid the price.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark and Glyn for their efforts and services to our football club over the past 19 months,” Bradford CEO Ryan Sparks said in a statement.

“They made an immediate impact at the club, both on and off the field, and last season came close to meeting our expectations.”


“Unfortunately, results have been disappointing since our play-off semi-final defeat at Carlisle, and after 11 league games, we find ourselves a long way from where we expect to be.” We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Mark and Glyn for their contributions to our football club over the last 19 months.

“On a personal level, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark and Glyn, and we parted on good terms.” I’d like supporters to join me in wishing them and their families the best of luck in the future, while remembering some of the great times they brought us.”

Bradford City are looking for a new manager, and former Pompey manager Danny Cowley is the favorite, with many bookmakers offering him at 3/1. Cowley was with Portsmouth for just under two years before leaving in January of this year after failing to make the playoffs.

He has been out of job since, but he is not the only manager with a good chance, as Leam Richardson, David Artell, and Nathan Jones are also in with a chance. Neil Warnock and Mike Williamson are a little further down the list. Some of those managers, however, will be looking for a higher-level position, and one opened up at Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night.
