‘This could be a good fit’ – Hull City eye Adkins successor: Opinion



Hull City have made an approach for Doncaster Rovers boss Grant McCann, as they look to fill the managerial void left by Nigel Adkins’ departure earlier this month.

McCann, 39, achieved a sixth-placed finish with Rovers in League One last season, before going on to narrowly lose out to Charlton Athletic in the play-off semi-final.

The Northern Irishman, who has also had a spell in charge of Peterborough, took over at the Keepmoat Stadium in June 2018 and has indicated that he wishes to speak to the Tigers.

So would McCann be the right appointment for Hull?

Tommy Joyce

“With McCann doing a good job at Doncaster, and Hull struggling to attract coaches, then this could be a good fit.

“After Adkins’ departure, it is hard for Hull to draw in a big name, as they will have to be content with a financially restricted side.

“However, McCann hasn’t exactly had a big budget at Doncaster, and he nearly got them into the play-off finals last year, if it wasn’t for penalties.

“He’s a coach with a rising stock, and while it is hard to predict how he would do, he will be confident in his abilities after a great season at the Keepmoat.”

Ben Lang

“I think this could prove to be a very clever appointment from Hull.

“McCann did an excellent job at Doncaster last season by guiding them to the League One play-offs, while playing an attractive style of football on a tight budget.

“This will have been appealing to Hull’s chiefs, who would also want their manager to work on limited funds next season. It is also a good move to select someone like McCann with EFL experience.

“However, I think this would be a risky move for McCann to make, as he is clearly entering a difficult situation at Hull following Adkins’ departure. He will need to be confident in his ability to overcome adversity if he is to take to job.”
