Bradford appoint new caretaker boss after first caretaker steps down from caretaker role

Bradford City has introduced a second interim manager to the team’s helm following the dismissal of Mark Hughes. Kevin McDonald, the initial interim manager, has reverted to his previous role as the League Two club faces ongoing challenges.

The Bantams are currently in search of a permanent manager to fill the void left by Mark Hughes, who was let go as the team struggled near the bottom of League Two last month. Initially, Kevin McDonald stepped in to lead the team, but he has since been replaced by Mark Trueman, allowing him to resume his previous position.

Ryan Sparks, the CEO of Bradford, noted, “Our quest for a new manager is still in progress, and we are in the final stages of interviews with potential candidates. This appointment is of great significance, and we have conducted thorough due diligence in the decision-making process.

I want to express our gratitude to Kevin McDonald for stepping up and guiding the team during the last six matches. Kevin has demonstrated commendable professionalism both on and off the field, achieving crucial results for the club.

Over the weekend, we had a discussion and mutually agreed that following the EFL Trophy game against Manchester City Under-21s, it would be the appropriate time for Kevin to transition back into the dressing room as a player.”
