Ipswich next manager after Kieran McKenna
Ipswich Town – Kieran McKenna
Which is the only British club that has never been beaten at home in international competitions? There are probably few who would say – Ipswich Town. Tractor Boys, as is the nickname of the team that has been playing for years in League 1, the third tier of English football, won the UEFA Cup in 1981, undefeated for 31 matches at Portman Road in European cups. Such giants as Real, Milan, Inter, Barcelona also fell in Ipswich...
After 26 rounds of League One, Plymouth is the leader with seven points more than Tractor Boys, who are in 3rd place. Barnsley, Bolton, Derby County, Charlton, clubs that used to play in the English Premier League are also in this level of the competition.
The most famous fan of this club is Ed Sheeran, a British music star who also played in the popular series Game of Thrones. Not only does his heart beat for Tractor Boys, but he also became a sponsor of the men's and women's soccer teams. Last season, when Ipswich were only 11th in League One and not even competitive for the play-offs, the club sold the most shirts in 15 years, close to 22,000. This year, an even bigger boom - the Ipswich jersey is selling like crazy, more than 11,000 were sold in six weeks from the start of the campaign, and during this season it is estimated that as many as 30,000 fans have the team's third jersey designed by Sheeran.
On the Ipswich bench sits Kieran McKenna. He has been at the helm of the team since 16th December 2021.
“When the initial contact came from Ipswich, I knew the background of the club, it's obviously a club with fantastic traditions and history,
I also knew the current situation with the ownership and the investment that has been put into the club and that they're looking to make going forward.
It was the right time for me to take the step, it's the right profile of club I was looking for and I'm grateful for them giving me this opportunity. I'm confident I'll be able to repay that faith in the future. I'm sure that with more time to work with the players, more time to bring in players who fit the profile of what I want, that we'll be able to put a style of play on the pitch that the Ipswich fans will really get behind” said Mckenna on his introducing as Ipswich manager.
Mckenna can boast that he worked alongside one of the greatest managers in today’s football, Jose Mourinho. At the time when Mourinho was in Tottenham, Mckenna ended his career as a player and joined Tottenham coaching stuff. He also led Tottenham U18 team before joining Manchester United.
He joined the “Red Devils” in 2016 and he was appointed as Manchester United U18 team until 2018 when he was promoted as assistant manager of Solskjaer. He stayed at the club even when Rangnick was manager before he moved to Ipswich.
It seems that Mckenna learned a lot from his previous jobs and colleagues as he is doing amazing job in Ipswich Town in League One.
