Salford City’s joint managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley have agreed to part company from the club just a fortnight after the club gained promotion to the fifth tier of English football.
In a statement released by the club, they said that a meeting took place between the club’s management and the joint-managers but there were irreconcilable differences around personal terms relating to contract length and performance related matters. We tried to work through these differences but unfortunately no mutually acceptable agreement could be reached.
The pair have guided Salford to three promotions in four seasons
Co-Owner Gary Neville said:
‘The last four seasons with the managers have been the most successful in the club’s history and a huge part of that is down to Anthony and Bernard, so this announcement is regrettable. However after a meeting this morning between myself, senior management and the managers it was clear there were differences between us that could not be resolved and it was therefore decided to part ways, and whilst this is disappointing, it is the right decision for all concerned’
First team coach Derek Egan will also leave the club. SCFC will make an announcement
regarding the role of manager at the club for next season in the coming days.
