McCall rules out Bradford switch

McCall has no plans to leave Sheffield United
Sheffield United player-coach Stuart McCall has revealed he will not be applying for the vacant managerial position at Bradford City.

The former Bradford midfielder was thought to be the favourite for the job after Nicky Law's sacking, but McCall has insisted he wants to remain at Bramall Lane under manager Neil Warnock.

"I won't be applying for the Bradford job," McCall told the United website.

"I love coaching but managing is a totally different ball game.

"I'm learning new things every week from Neil Warnock. The Bradford job has put the spotlight on me and management is somewhere I want to go but at the moment I'm enjoying every minute of being at Sheffield United."

"I'm looking forward to having success here. We are in a good position, we have big players to come back and if the gaffer can use the loan system like he did last year there are good times ahead."

McCall started his career at Valley Parade back in 1987 and, following successful spells with Everton and Rangers, skippered Bradford to promotion to the Premiership.
