Alexander back in League Two at Bradford City
Former Claret Graham Alexander started this season as the new manager at Milton Keynes but after a really good start, they went on a short run without a win which quickly cost him his job.
He’d been out of work since leaving Motherwell a year earlier prior to moving to MK and he’d managed Fleetwood, Scunthorpe and Salford before taking the job in Scotland.
It’s just three weeks since he lost his job at MK but he’s quickly got back in with his appointment today as Bradford City manager. He said today: “It is really good to be here. I am very excited about the role, the potential of the team and the club.
“Me and Chris (Lucketti, his assistant) have been here quite a few times as a management duo competing against Bradford City, but it will be good to be on the right side now. When the stadium is full and the crowd is behind the team, it is a really difficult venue to come and play at, so we have to make it a tough place for everyone to visit.”
He added: “I am really excited for the weekend. You will not see me sat down in the dugout too much, as I will be up on my feet, but we know what this venue is like for a game of football, and we are looking forward to getting our supporters behind this team and bringing them excitement.
Alexander replaces his former Burnley team mate Kevin McDonald who has been standing in as interim manager since the sacking of Mark Hughes.Follow UpTheClarets:
