Jim Gannon Favourite To Succeed Dietmar Hamann At Stockport County

Jim Gannon is being well backed to replace Dietmar Hamann as manager of Stockport County. Hamann suprisingly decided to leave his post on Monday after just four months in charge, citing broken promises and boardroom unrest as the main reasons behind his exit. The Blue Square Bet Premier side are now in the hunt for a new boss with former manager Gannon the evens favourite with Stan James in the Next Stockport County Manager betting market.

Hamann, a former German international and Liverpool star, leaves Stockport languishing in 17th in the table with only one win to their name from their last ten league games. His record during his short time at the club fails to set the world alight with just three wins from 19 leagues games in charge. The 38-year-old stated that he was left dissapointed that the businessman Tony Evans, who recommended him the job, ultimately failed in his bid to takeover the club which paid a big part in his decision to leave the club. Hamann has also said that he is eager to return to football management if the right opportunity arises.

The club hope to appoint a new manager as soon as possible with Gannon believed to be the number one candidate. The 43-year-old managed the club between 2005 and 2009 and guided them up to League One in 2008. Other names in the frame to succeed Hamann at Edgeley Park include Willie Mcstay, Martin Foyle, Sammy Mcilroy and Ronnie Moore. County travel to Ebbsfleet United on Saturday for their first match without Didi. County are just two places behind their opponents and a win will draw them level on points.
