Football: Royle may be waiting for Maine Road chance
Thursday 08 January 1998
The former Everton manager was approached by Bradford before they completed the dismissal of Chris Kamara, but has rejected the chance.
Royle has already declined an invitation from the Irish Football Association to take charge of Northern Ireland - because he wants a club job in England. Despite denials, Royle is still the clear favourite to replace Frank Clark at Maine Road. He is the man that the new City director, Dennis Tueart, wants to take charge.
Bradford are also facing disappointment in their quest to lure the Rangers and Scotland midfielder Stuart McCall back to the club, and Oldham's Neil Warnock, a close friend of the Bradford chairman Geoffrey Richmond, emerged last night as the new name at the top of their wanted list.
The City chairman, Francis Lee, is insisting that he has no intention of selling Georgi Kinkladze "We've had no bid of pounds 7m, and if we did we'd refuse it," he said. Lee was reacting to speculation that the Georgian playmaker had been the subject of an increased bid from Everton.
