Four Four Two rank DC as 7th best manager

June 23, 2017


In an article in Four Four Two Mike Holden ranks the top 10 managers in the EFL and Darrell Clarke comes in at number 7.

Here is what he had to say:

The shock sale of star striker Matty Taylor to arch-rivals Bristol City in January would have derailed most teams in their first season at a new level, but it served only to bring out the best in Clarke. The Rovers boss was defiant in the aftermath, preaching collective responsibility as the focus shifted on to the defence and results improved as important goals began to arrive from midfield.

It wasn’t quite enough to land a play-off berth in the end, but a third promotion in four years will be a realistic target if the Gasheads can lay their hands on another 20-goal marksman.
