Alan Pardew lined up to complete shock return to management after 1 year out – ESPN

According to ESPN, Alan Pardew is in contention to complete a shock move to the US, with him now a ‘serious candidate’ to become the new manager of MLS side FC Cincinnati manager.

The former Newcastle boss has been out of management for over a year following his sacking at West Brom in April 2018 – a miserable period which saw him win just 1 game in 18 attempts.

Today, ESPN are claiming that the 57-year-old is now ‘”a serious candidate” in FC Cincinnati’s search for a new head coach.

The report also states that former Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka and Tab Ramos – United States U-20 national team head coach – are also being considered.

FC Cincinnati are currently bottom of the MLS’ Eastern Conference, with them having picked up just 11 points in their opening 16 games so far this season.

One thought on “Alan Pardew lined up to complete shock return to management after 1 year out – ESPN
