Stuart McCall staying on as Bradford City manager

Stuart McCall will stay on as manager of Bradford City, the club has confirmed.

McCall took charge of Bradford for the second time last summer and guided the Bantams to the League One play-off final, where they lost 1-0 to Millwall.

A statement released by the club tonight comes following speculation that he was due to resign from his post.

In the wake of our disappointing defeat in the play-off final there has been a lot of discussion between us about how best we take the football club forward. The pain of that defeat has hurt us all.

It wasn’t the outcome we wanted, however we have taken some time to reflect and regroup. Recent speculation has been unfounded, hurtful and unhelpful.

Stuart is our manager and will be staying as our manager.

The money received from player transfers and our trip to Wembley will be re-invested in the squad, on the right players when the time is right. We have shown our commitment to investing money in players as recently as January with the £250,000 signing of Charlie Wyke...

All we ask as supporters is that you give us your patience, as you have in the past, and trust us all to work together to act in the best interests of this great football club.

Our season has not long ended and we’ve all needed to stop and have some family time and to recharge.

We’re now ready to go again. Don’t underestimate what we can achieve together.
