The Scottish Sun reports today that Fulham coach Billy McKinlay is a contender for the Dundee United job after the Arabs pulled out of a proposed move for Bohemians boss Pat Fenlon.
I was initially very sceptical about Chris Coleman bringing in McKinlay, his former Blackburn team-mate, especially as a player when there were other options available. But the Scot has done an excellent job with the reserve team, offering some of the younger talent previously sidelined by Coleman a chance to shine. He has already been interviewed for the Tannadice post according to reports and McKinlay, who used to play for United before moving south, obviously still features on the shortlist.
There is no denying that he has done a brillant job at Fulham but he might be foolish to let this go by. If he goes, ill wish him all the best!
Don’t know if Fulham fans know this or not but he was a hero for united in his playing days , so don’t be to angry with him if he comes back to us his ties to the club are strong as he came through our youth development program and stayed for the most part of his carrier .
Badger,s coming home : )
I’d be delighted if McKinlay makes it as a manager. Best of luck for the rest of the season!
