David Hopkins Resigns As Bradford City Manager
Bradford City have this morning confirmed that David Hopkin has resigned as manager of the club with immediate effect. This follows a poor display at the weekend when his side lost 3-2 against Sky Bet League One side Walsall.
Hopkin, who arrived at Valley Parade from Scottish Premier League side Livingstone six months ago said, “I am disappointed but I feel it’s the right time for me to step aside and allow someone else to come in and attempt to keep the club in Sky Bet League One. I’ve given my all over the past six months, in a tough job and have left no stone unturned in my efforts to help us climb the table.
The club means a great deal to me as a former player and that is why I have made this decision with a quarter of the season remaining. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the incredible Bradford City fans. This has been a hugely difficult season for us all involved and they have shown me a great deal of support, I wish the club the very best for the future.”
