The Search Continues
Updated Tuesday, 5th January 2010
Stephen Thompson is still on the hunt for his new manager.
Dundee United are still without a manager and chairman Stephen Thompson is travelling all over the country continuing the interview process in his search for a new man in the dugout. Thompson began speaking to possible replacements for new Scotland manager Craig Levein last week and headed down south on Monday to speak to more. The Tannadice chairman hopes to have announced the new manager's name before United's Scottish Cup fourth-round tie against Partick Thistle on Saturday. United have taken just one point from three league games since Levein moved on and Peter Houston stepped up as caretaker manager. Despite this disappointing downturn in fortunes, Thompson will not hesitate to extend the process to get the right man.
Thompson said: "I am working non-stop on this and, of course, I would like someone in place for Saturday, or at least watching from the stand, but I can't say that will happen. What we have to have is the best man for the job and, if that means waiting a day or two beyond the weekend, then that's how it will have to be. I won't let things drag on, but I still have people I want to speak to and names are still coming in. If there is anyone I feel I should interview, I will."
