Hull City Grant McCann

Hull City has confirmed the sacking of manager Grant McCann following the takeover of the club by Turkish businessman Acun Illicali. McCann was sacked despite big wins over promoting-chasing Blackburn and Bournemouth. Illicali took over the club last week after approval from the English Football League. The takeover marked the end of an 11-year reign of the Allam family.

“Grant has done an excellent job for this football club in difficult circumstances, most specifically during the takeover process, and for that, I offer my sincere thanks,” Hull City owner Ilicali said confirming the sacking of Grant McCann. “These matters are never easy and are more often than not protracted. During the process, Grant has always remained professional and fully focused on the team, and will forever be a friend of the Tigers. I’m sure Grant will be successful in whatever his next challenge is.”

“However, now is the time for change and for me to start to build, in what I believe will be an incredibly exciting time for the club,” he added. “I have a philosophy and a belief that our project should start as we mean to carry on and that involves having my team in place. I understand the timing may look odd, after two good wins, but I wouldn’t be fair or honest if I merely waited for a defeat to change manager. That benefits nobody. I will continue to be transparent with you, our fans.”
