Sheffield United make McCall move
Motherwell have revealed that they have received an approach for manager Stuart McCall from Sheffield United.
The 48-year-old, who joined the Fir Park outfit in January 2010, led his side to a second-place finish in the SPL this season, which represents the club’s best final position since 1995.
That achievement has sparked the interest of League One side Sheffield United, who have opted against appointing caretaker coach Chris Morgan on a permanent basis following their play-off semi-final defeat to Yeovil Town.
Motherwell chief executive Leeann Dempster told STV: “I can confirm we had an approach from Sheffield United regarding Stuart McCall last night.”
McCall, who was born in Leeds, England but represented Scotland at international level, brought his playing career to an end at United in 2005 after a three-year spell.
He last managed in England with Bradford City, but failed to guide the Yorkshire club out of League Two and left by mutual consent after just under three years in charge.
He subsequently moved to Motherwell later in 2010 and, along with overseeing league finishes of sixth, third and second, he took the club to the Scottish Cup final.
