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

Bradford City have appointed a second caretaker manager after the first stepped down.

The Bantams are still looking for a new manager after Mark Hughes was fired last month with the team near the bottom of League Two. Kevin McDonald stepped in initially, but has since been replaced by Mark Trueman and returned to his previous position.

Bradford’s CEO, Ryan Sparks, stated, “Our search for a new manager is ongoing, and we are currently scheduling final interviews with candidates.” This is a very important appointment, and as with any decision of this magnitude, extensive research has been conducted.

Mark Trueman, Assistant Manager of Bradford City applauds prior to the Papa John's Trophy match between Bradford City and Manchester United U21 at Utilita Energy Stadium on September 21, 2021 in Bradford, England.

“I’d like to thank Kevin McDonald for stepping up and leading the team for the past six games.” Kevin has performed admirably both on and off the field, securing some important results for the club.

“We had a conversation over the weekend, and agreed that following the EFL Trophy game against Manchester City Under-21s, would come the right time for Kevin to step back into the dressing room as a player.”Mark Trueman is no stranger to this role, and he has our full support and confidence ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup first round match against Wycombe Wanderers. The next update will be the introduction of our new men’s first-team manager.”
