EDIN Rahic has this afternoon confirmed that City have been “inundated” with applicants to replace Stuart McCall as City boss.

The Valley Parade joint-owner spoke for the first time since sacking McCall on Monday morning.

He said: "We have been inundated with applicants in the past 24 hours and have spoken to a number of high calibre individuals."

“This is not a process we can rush but at the same time we appreciate the fans wanting to know that progress is being made.

"In the meantime, the existing back room staff will be taking care of first team affairs ahead of Saturday's game. This structure will remain in place until further notice."
