HULL IN NO RUSH OVER MANAGER
Hull are in no rush to install a new manager following the departure of Nick Barmby.
Fans' favourite Barmby was sacked last week after initially being suspended for questioning the board's ambition and the club have since been linked with a long list of possible replacements.
"I can understand the concerns of fans and the fact that they want to see a manager in place as quickly as possible," Hull vice-chairman Ehab Allam told the Hull Daily Mail. "I didn't envisage having to go through this process at this time, but that's the situation we're in.
"Thankfully though, we are at the start of the off-season, so there's a bit of time for us and we don't have to rush into anything.
"We don't want the matter to drag on and we recognise the need to bring some stability to matters. But having said that, I'm not putting any deadline on it."
Former Tigers manager Phil Brown, Mick McCarthy, sacked by Wolves in February, Carlisle manager Greg Abbott and ex-Huddersfield boss Lee Clark are among thoses understood to be in the running for the job.
