Hull City want to speak to Doncaster Rovers boss Grant McCann about their managerial vacancy, as reported by The72 yesterday. Should the 39-year-old join the Tigers?

Pros

Step up- A move up to the Championship would be a step up for McCann and an opportunity to test himself in a higher division. There is no doubt managing Hull is a tough job at the moment but it would be a chance for him to impress on a bigger stage.

Ex-Premier League club- The Tigers were in the top flight two seasons ago, have an impressive stadium and a lot of potential to be successful in the future. Is it too good of an opportunity to reject?

Cons

Poor owners- The Allams are a nightmare to work under and numerous managers have come and gone under their ownership now. There was a reason why Nigel Adkins decided to leave, likewise with Steve Bruce, Marco Silva etc. which is a worrying sign to any potential manager.

Limited budget- Hull’s owners won’t invest bags of money into the squad this summer meaning McCann, if he does join, won’t have much room to manoeuvre in the transfer market. However, that is no different to his current situation at Doncaster now and he has still been able to do well with what he has got.

Need to get the fans onside- It is no secret that many Hull fans boycott home games and will continue to do so until the owners leave. Adkins had a good relationship with them though and McCann would have to do the same.
