GOOD NEWS: Bradford City now in advance talks for managerial swoop for recently departed EFL boss

Bradford City are considering a move for Dean Holden as they look for a new manager, according to i news.
Bradford City is on the lookout for a successor for Mark Hughes. Kevin McDonald is now in charge of the League Two club.

Charlton Athletic fired Holden, 44, at the end of August. He has recently been exploring his possibilities in the NFL.

According to the latest i news update on the Bantams’ management search, Holden is ‘among the candidates’ for their vacant position following their 4-1 loss away at MK Dons last time out.

Bradford’s most recent manager
Holden is an experienced coach who may feel he has much to show in the dugout after his time at Charlton ended prematurely.

He previously played as a full-back for Bolton Wanderers, Oldham Athletic, and Shrewsbury Town. In 2014, he hung up his boots.

The Mancunian then moved into coaching, managing Oldham Athletic and Bristol City to date. He has served as temporary manager at Stoke City after previously serving as their number two.

He was employed by Charlton in December of last year and won 37.5% of his matches in charge of the Addicks before his recent departure.


Bradford must make a major decision about their future course of action. Under Hughes, they made the play-offs last season but were defeated in the semi-finals over two legs by eventual winners Carlisle United.

This term’s goal has been and continues to be promotion. They appeared to have turned a corner under McDonald following some promising results, but MK Dons took them down a peg or two.
