Football: Kamara the rebel sacked.

Chris Kamara was sacked by Bradford City yesterday after a running feud with chairman Geoffrey Richmond.

Kamara paid for a poor run of results, ending in an FA Cup defeat by Manchester City on Saturday, when Richmond dismissed him last night.

However, Kamara has been at odds with Richmond for months over spending money on new players. Richmond even criticised his manager in the club programme.

Richmond will offer the job to ex-Everton manager Joe Royle. Former Bradford player Stuart McCall is also in the frame.

Rumours of a move for Royle have been rampant, and Kamara was unhappy at the lack of backing from his board.

Kamara has been in charge for two years and he took the club from Second Division obscurity to top of the First Division earlier in the season.

However, his battle with Richmond could have only one winner. Kamara goes despite his success, with City saying that his axing was due to poor results.

Now Richmond may find it hard to replace his young former manager. Royle is also wanted by Manchester City, while McCall still wants to play for Rangers.
