Hull City will be moving swiftly to find a replacement for Nigel Adkins, who has decided to leave the KCOM Stadium at the end of the month, with only a few weeks to go until the start of pre-season.
One name being linked with the post is Rotherham United manager Paul Warne, according to HITC, who despite relegation this season is admired as a coach capable of working with a very tight budget.
So how big a concern is it for Millers fans that Warne is being linked with the Tigers?
“It should be a big worry for the fans.
“Rotherham would lose a big part of the club if he goes. He knows it inside out and has brought success when it seemed unlikely.
“Pre season is not far away, the club will already be identifying players to be brought in. They need to know who their manager will be as soon as possible so this situation will need to be clarified soon.”
“This has to be a worry.
“Warne played a huge part in getting Rotherham out of League One at the first attempt last time they were at that level, and could be crucial to their hopes of doing the same again next season.
“If a side like Hull do come calling however, it may be hard for Warne to turn down a move to the Championship with a side that will be looking to pull away from the relegation battle once and for all in the coming campaign.”
“It’s a massive concern.
“Warne has really built a great reputation with the Millers in his time as manager of the club and losing him now would be a big blow.
“They have just been relegated but they will have a good chance of going straight back up although this could scupper those plans.”
