3 Managers Who Could Succeed Steve Bruce At Hull City

The news of Steve Bruce leaving the job of Hull City manager was quite a shocker. After successfully guiding the Tigers back to Premier League, Bruce was expected to build on the success he achieved last season and gradually transform Hull into an established Premier League force. A breakdown in his relationship with vice-chairman Ehab Allam is said to have contributed to his departure.

Hull City now have a big task on their hands to replace the Englishman and they have to do it real soon to offer the new manager the much-needed room and time to reinforce his squad before the new season starts. In this article, we will be looking at three managers who could possibly replace Bruce in the hot seat.

Roberto Martinez

Making his name with Wigan Athletic, Martinez was snapped up by Everton in 2013 after a curious combination of relegation from the Premier League and FA Cup win. Rated highly by the pundits and the fans for his attacking approach to the game, the Spaniard failed to reach the heights at Goodison Park.

With monumental expectations on his shoulders, Martinez delivered the Everton fans two straight bottom half finishes and it finally proved to be enough for the Everton owners to part ways with him. Martinez could be a good candidate to replace Steve Bruce at the KC Stadium. He employs good, fluid attacking football but might want to focus a bit more on the defence next time.

Phil Brown

Brown was the man who took the Tigers to the Premier League for the first time in their history in 2008 and arguably laid out the road map which continued the journey into the club’s most successful era. Then a series of dubious signings and odd management decisions made Hull fans’ very own ‘Brownie’ part ways with the Tigers and eventually Hull were sent back to the Championship. Brown is right now a local legend at Southend United guiding the League Two club to successive play-offs and finally promotion to League One in 2015. Hull could definitely bring their former hero back to the club.

Neil Warnock

With a managerial career spanning four decades and 14 clubs, Warnock has emerged as the bookies’ choice to take over Hull City. Warnock has seen it all in his career where he managed clubs ranging from Leeds United and Sheffield United to Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers. Hull could definitely benefit from an experienced gaffer like the 67-year-old. However, they could move for a long-term solution.
