Jay Bothroyd thinks 39-year-old would be a ‘great choice’ for Cardiff City manager’s job



Cardiff have been on the hunt for a new boss since relieving Mick McCarthy of his duties at the club – and now, former player Jay Bothroyd has taken to Twitter to reveal who he thinks should be the side’s next manager.

Cardiff sunk to yet another Championship loss in midweek against QPR and it now means that the team are winless in their last ten fixtures. In fact, the last time the Bluebirds picked up a win was way back on September 12th against Nottingham Forest.

Since then, the side have toiled and struggled at the bottom end of the second tier table and with the side falling down the league drastically, they decided to pull the plug on boss Mick McCarthy.

The search is now on for a new manager to drag the club out of the mire and back up towards the top half of the table – and one of the club’s former players has had his say on who he thinks should lead Cardiff forward.

Taking to his Twitter account, he said that he believes Mark Hudson would be the ideal man to take the Bluebirds up the table and that he would play ‘attacking football which everyone wants to see.’

Hudson has never held a permanent managerial role in his career as of yet. His only stint in the role has been at Huddersfield Town, where he was handed the reigns on an interim basis on two separate occasions while the Terriers looked for a new boss.

Despite this lack of experience in the head role, the former player did once captain the side and certainly knows how to lead a team on the field – and Bothroyd believes it is a skill that could carry over to the sidelines, where he could lead the Bluebirds as their new boss. Hudson may not have the experience and the appointment would be a gamble but the striker certainly believes it could be what Cardiff need to get back up the league table.

The Verdict

There are plenty of potential candidates for the Cardiff job right now and Hudson is certainly another name you could throw into the mix. However, the former player is relatively untested in the role of manager and it would prove to be a big gamble if he was given the job.

The Bluebirds right now would be better served not taking a risky option and going for a more experienced head to get them out of the mire. In this respect then, perhaps Hudson would be a better fit later on down the line when they are in a better situation.
