The Tractor Boys were expected to be pushing for automatic promotion before a ball was kicked this season, but they were inconsistent under Paul Cook for the early part of the campaign, which eventually cost him his job.
Since then, plenty of names have been linked with the vacancy but it has been reported today that McKenna is in line to take over.
The 35-year-old, who has also worked at Tottenham, has a good reputation as a coach in the game but even though he is coming from one of the biggest clubs in the world, there are risks considering his lack of experience as the main man.

Therefore, perhaps unsurprisingly, there was a real mixed reaction to the news from the Ipswich support.
Here we look at some of the comments to the update from Twitter…

To convince a Man Utd first team coach to drop to L1 is a significant coup for the owners. Especially if he brings Pert with him too.
You'd imagine significant promises on funding have been made too #itfc

Listen . He probably has some great connections , Tottenham an Man U on his CV and bring some experience in around him
Listen we had a tried and tested Manager in Cook , Lambert . Look where that got us … I think this is positive .

Got to give the guy a chance. People need to remember Mourinho learned under Robson and Mckenna has learned under Mourinho. That can't be bad surely.

Would be a bold and exciting appointment, needs to be backed by the fans and given time by the owners. We’ll get out of this funk eventually! Uppa Towen!
