Speak to him” – Pundit urges Plymouth Argyle to make ambitious move for Paul Heckingbottom

Plymouth Argyle are still searching for a permanent replacement for Ian Foster after he was sacked in April.

Plymouth Argyle could benefit from considering Heckingbottom due to his track record of promotions in the Championship. While it may be a long shot, approaching him could be a strategic move for the club, especially after Rosenior’s refusal. It’s crucial for Plymouth to set their sights high in their managerial hunt to ensure they make the right decision this time.

Pundit Carlton Palmer suggests that Plymouth Argyle should ambitiously pursue Paul Heckingbottom, although he acknowledges that the former Sheffield United manager might not be inclined to accept the position. The Pilgrims are currently in the hunt for a permanent replacement for Ian Foster, who was dismissed in April following a lackluster three-month tenure at Home Park. Neil Dewsnip, the Director of Football, assumed interim responsibilities until the season’s end after Foster’s departure. During his tenure, Dewsnip managed to secure three victories and one draw in six matches, ensuring Argyle’s retention in the Championship.

The Pilgrims suffered a blow in their managerial search last week as ex-Hull City boss Liam Rosenior, who was surprisingly sacked by the Tigers earlier this month, rejected the job.

Argyle will now need to turn their attention elsewhere, and according to journalist John Percy, Heckingbottom will be interviewed this week.

Heckingbottom has been out of work since being dismissed by Sheffield United in December after a poor start to life in the Premier League, but he did lead the Blades to promotion from the Championship last season as they finished second behind champions Burnley.

The Sun claimed in March that Heckingbottom was Sunderland’s first choice target to replace Michael Beale, but there has been little progress since then, and he remains on the market
