Anthony Hudson is the surprise name being mooted as Alex Neil’s successor at Carrow Road according to The Sun
Warren Haughton, who often appears on TalkSport says that Hudson, who is currently the manager of the New Zealand national side, was strongly linked with the Derby County job before the Rams re-appointed Steve McLaren last year. He reportedly turned down the MK Dons job too but The Sun think that he is keen to return to English football for the ‘right job.’
Here’s the interesting part, this story suggests that informal talks have already taken place between Ed Balls and Hudson’s agent about the Norwich job. They also report that he is on a shortlist of five, with Roy Hodgson, Alan Pardew, Nigel Pearson and Alan Irvine – strewth, hardly inspiring.
I knew nothing about Hudson prior to reading this but I would scratch Irvine and Pearson off that list immediately.
