Stuart McCall has taken charge of his Bradford City for the third time in his career, and the club posted a photo of him in action, much to the delight of the fans.
On Monday afternoon, the club confirmed that they have parted company with manager Gary Bowyer after a disappointing run of results has seen them slip down the table.
At the weekend, they fell to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Oldham Athletic and this proved to be the final nail in the coffin for Bowyer, seeing him depart after just taking charge in April last year.
Stuart McCall was confirmed as the club’s new manager on Tuesday, for his third stint at the Utilita Energy Stadium, having taken charge of the club on two other occasions. McCall was at the club as recently as last season when he was in charge during their League One struggles and departed in April before their eventual demise to League Two.
McCall was straight out onto the training ground for Bradford and the club’s official twitter account posted a fond message about their new boss:

The Bantams were preparing for the visit of Grimsby at the weekend where McCall will be hoping for the perfect homecoming with a win to get the side back on track and nearing closer to the play-off places.
With fans getting to see this familiar face taking charge of training, we take a look at how fans reacted on twitter…

How much do you know about Bradford’s January signings?
See that automatic place up there lads? That's where were heading.

He’s telling the players that they won’t need to constantly look up in the sky to look for the ball or receive it any more!

Well excited for Saturday. Can’t wait to see what he does with our attacking players. We will actually get to watch our team play football instead of the oppo.
