Salford City are searching for their third manager of the season after the League Two club wielded the axe on Richie Wellens, just nine days after he won the club’s first major trophy in their history.
Wellens’ side overcame League One Portsmouth on penalties in the Papa John’s Trophy Final, a result which cost Jackett his job.
Wellens, who joins Jackett in the Job Centre, now leaves 9th-placed Salford six points off the fourth-tier play-off places with 11 games remaining.
On Monday afternoon, a club statement read:
“Salford City Football Club has parted company with Richie Wellens by mutual consent.
“We would like to thank Richie for his time and efforts at the Club and wish him well for the future.
“An announcement about a new manager will be made in due course.
“There will be no further comment.”
Richie Wellens has been sacked nine days after winning Salford City a trophy
Back in November Wellens left his post at Swindon in order to replace Graham Alexander at Salford, but less than five months later and he’s been axed.
Whether Salford have someone lined up or not is open to debate but Bet Victor have opened up the next Salford manager market which features the aforementioned Jackett, Alex Neil - who left Preston on Sunday - and former Man Utd players Roy Keane and Ryan Giggs.
Former Blackburn, Blackpool and Bradford gaffer Gary Bowyer has been touted as a potential replacement, ex-Millwall and Cardiff City manager Neil Harris is also in the mix, as is former Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes.
Then there's the likes of Paul Tisdale, Phil Parkinson, Daniel Stendel, and Ian Holloway.
