Malky Mackay Looking To Get Back Into Management

Malky MackayThe annual summer managerial merry-go-round is now in full flow and one gaffer looking to get back on the fairground ride is Malky Mackay. The former Cardiff Manager has been out of work since leaving the Cardiff City stadium but with his legal dispute with the Bluebirds now at an end, he is clearly eager to get back into football sooner rather than later.

It was widely considered that Mackay was harshly treated at Cardiff having taken them into the Premier League and there will be no shortage of suitors for the former Scotland Defender. A number of clubs are currently searching for a new Manager and Mackay is being mentioned for several of them as he plots his return to the game in time for pre-season.

Mackay had a successful playing career with Norwich City and with a vacancy at Carrow Road, he is certainly being well backed to head to East Anglia. The Canaries were relegated from the Premier League recently and with Mackay's experience of the Championship, he is likely to be viewed as an ideal candidate to take them back into the top flight at the first time of asking.

Staying in the Championship, Brighton are also in the market for a new gaffer after Oscar Garcia left the club and once again Malky Mackay has been mentioned as possible replacement down on he south coast. The Seagulls lost out in the play-offs recently and they will be desperate to improve on that next campaign with Premier League football their ultimate aim.

Those two jobs would see the Sccot drop down into the Championship but there could be an opening in the Premier League with West Brom currently without a Manager. The Baggies did stay in the top flight under Pepe Mel but the Spaniard has left the club since with West Brom looking for their third Manager in under a year.

That job could appeal to Mackay if he wants to stay in the Premier League while the options of Norwich and Brighton may also appeal on a different level. It would be a major surprise if Mackay didn't find himself at one of those three clubs in the next few weeks as one of the brightest young British Managers in the game looks to get himself back in the hot-seat.
