www.wearehullcity.co.uk/news/2022/october/statement-from-chairman-head-coach/ After extensive discussions with Pedro Martins, we have been unable to reach a mutually agreeable position so we have made the decision to cancel negotiations. Pedro is a great coach but we didn’t feel we were able to meet his demands, so we thank him for his interest in Hull City and wish him all the best for the future.
Carrick has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Chris Wilder at the Riverside, with the Middlesbrough hierarchy understood to have held preliminary discussions with the former England international and his representatives.
However, the Teessiders are not the only club exploring the possibility of handing Carrick his first managerial position, with West Brom also searching for a new boss following the dismissal of former Newcastle United and Sunderland manager Steve Bruce earlier today.
The Baggies have begun the process of appointing Bruce’s successor, with Carrick and ex-Boro boss Chris Wilder believed to be figuring prominently in their thoughts.
Their interest in Carrick could put them into conflict with Middlesbrough, with the North-Easterner increasingly viewed as the prime candidate for the vacant head coach position on Teesside.
Rob Edwards remains an option, with the Boro hierarchy having spoken to the former Forest Green boss, who secured promotion from League Two last season before moving on to Watford, where he lasted just 11 games before he was dismissed.
Carlos Corberan was strongly linked over the weekend, with his achievements last season, when he led Huddersfield Town to the Championship play-off final, standing him in good stead despite his subsequent brief unsuccessful spell with Greek side Olympiacos.
However, at this stage, Carrick appears to be leading the race
Perhaps we should just have a random mangerial each week? Would make things more interesting. Saves having to get too in love with one particular manager. Although admittedly the manager songs would dry up.
“All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. ... Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.”
