Now Motherwell may lose a Manager

Recommended Posts

Summer of change already both off and on the Pitch, now chance another managerial vacancy may arise

 

###

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson and former St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright have been interviewed for the Northern Ireland vacancy.

Five candidates are being considered to replace Michael O'Neill, who left to concentrate on his job with Stoke City. Robinson, 45, assisted O'Neill as Northern Ireland reached Euro 2016 and the Well boss has also coached his country's youth teams.

Wright, 56, left Saints this summer after seven years in charge.Both men represented Northern Ireland as players, with goalkeeper Wright winning 31 caps and midfielder Robinson capped seven times.

At McDiarmid Park, Wright enjoyed Scottish Cup success in 2014 and secured five top-six finishes in the Scottish Premiership.

Robinson's Well reached both domestic cup finals in season 2017-18 and were third in last season's top flight.....Motherwell, who start their Premiership campaign and Europa League qualifiers in August, said on their website they had "reluctantly granted" permission for the Irish FA to speak to Robinson and added: "We have expressed in the strongest possible terms that we want him to stay with us."

You would imagine Robinson at 45 will still want to continue as a club manager unless the money is too good to turn down.

I like Motherwell as a team and  I’d be pleased if they lost Robinson but I think Wright has a better chance of getting the NI job

Finish third, playing above themselves, manager off to a national side... If they get drawn against a Welsh side in Europe I'll be advising their fans to sit this season out... 

No idea what you are talking about. It didn’t happen
