Fleetwood Town to step up manager search

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 28 July 2016, 13:39

Fleetwood Town may have lost Steven Pressley on Tuesday, but the club’s chairman Andy Pilley has promised supporters a new manager with “exceptional” ability, however with just nine days to go until the start of the season he’d better get a move on.

So far there have been a cluster of high profile names linked with the League One vacancy, including frontrunner Rene Meulensteen, former Leeds boss Uwe Rosler, and two familiar names in Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs.

The Cod Army are believed to have held talks with a couple of candidates, one of whom is thought to be Meulensteen who can currently be found at the top of the betting at 11/10 (Sky Bet).

The 52-year-old famously worked under Sir Alex Ferguson at United, helping the Red Devils win a hat-trick of Premier League titles, a Champions League trophy, and a brace of League Cups to name a few.

The Dutchman then moved abroad to Russia in 2013, but bizarrely lasted just 16 days at the helm of Anzhi Makhachkala. This was followed by a disappointing 17 game stint in charge of Fulham, and he’s been out of the dugout ever since.

Alternatively, the former Leeds, Wigan and Brentford boss Rosler (7/4) is both available and keen to get back into the managerial arena, while Fleetwood could take a gamble and appoint someone at the start of their management career, with Neville and Giggs available at 5/1 and 6/1 respectively.
