Gary Bower has been appointed as the new manager of Bradford club. The former boss of Blackpool and Blackburn has agreed on an initial deal to take over the charge till the end of the season. He is going to replace David Hopkin. He had resigned only last week after handling the managerial post for six months.
Bower had been out of work since the time he left Blackpool in the month of August. He is going to be assisted by the son of Colin Todd, the former City manager, Andy Todd. Bower has stated that he is delighted to be there. He has also said that it is a large club and the opportunity of handling Bradford City isn’t that easy to get. This was the one that he had to take. He goes on to say that he had been ready to take over a job into management for a long time now but it is about waiting for the right opportunity. It is a great one for himself, as well as Andy.
Bradford is presently 23rd in League One and is 6 points adrift of safety. However, Bower has said that they are completely aware of this challenge which lied ahead of them but he says that if he didn’t believe that he could get out of this then he wouldn’t have been there. According to him, it is important to believe in the prayers and they are going to work really hard till the end of the season.
