STUART McCall insists “100 per cent” he won’t be resigning as City boss.

Speculation intensified today that the manager could be poised to leave the Bantams.

Rumours circulated on social media that the City chief could quit after just one year at the helm following his return to Valley Parade last June.

But when asked this afternoon if he was due to call time on his second spell, he told the T&A: “100 per cent I won’t be resigning.”

Having exceeded expectations by taking the Bantams all the way to a Wembley play-off final in his first campaign, such a scenario would come as a massive blow to City fans.

McCall had expressed his hope to keep the majority of the squad together that were pipped at the last hurdle by Millwall in the League One play-off final.

But three players have already left the club and Rory McArdle is expected to turn down a contract offer to join Scunthorpe. Mark Marshall and Tony McMahon are also attracting attention from elsewhere as City wait to see if they put pen to paper on deals offered.

McCall, who turned 53 on Saturday, has admitted that it has been challenging working within a more hands-on approach under German owners Edin Rahic and Stefan Rupp.

He will sit down for more talks with Rahic early this week as the club plot the way forward for the coming season.

Rahic has insisted fans remain patient as they earmark targets, insisting the club will not panic in signing new players.
