Bradford City are still in the hunt for a new manager after Simon Grayson left them at the end of the season.
They have been linked with various names over the past couple of weeks such as Grant McCann and David Hopkin and more recently the likes of Paul Heckingbottom, Darren Ferguson and Robbie Stockdale’s names have been mentioned.
However, they should look to appoint Mark Warburton as their new manager this summer. Here is why-
Experience- Warburton has bags of experience and contacts in the game which would make him well equipped to the Bradford City hot seat. There will be a lot of expectation to get them out of League One next season and he has the know-how to handle that.
Been there, done that- The 55-year-old guided Brentford to promotion from the third tier in 2014. His Bees side finished 2nd in the league and then got into the Championship Play-Offs in the season after. Warburton also has promotion experience from his time up in Scotland with Rangers. He got the Glasgow giants promoted from the Scottish Championship back to the top flight in 2016 and also won the Scottish Challenge Cup in the same year.
Point to prove- Warburton’s most recent spell as a manager was with Nottingham Forest but it ended prematurely. He was sacked in December with the club in 14th place in the Championship. He now has a point to prove and there is no better way to prove doubters wrong then if he guided Bradford City back to the Championship.
