The now retired full back is set to be caretaker manager for the club’s Evo-Stik Division One North fixture against Kendal Town according to the Daily Mirror.

Manager Phil Power and assistant Dave Chadwick were both given their marching orders after Salford’s 3-2 loss to promotion rivals Droylsden on New Years Day

Salford said they wanted a change of direction at the top of the club after the side fell to third place in the division.

The following statement was released by the club following Power’s departure: “The committee and owners would like to thank Phil for all his hard work and commitment and wish him all the best for the future.

“The Club feel they need to take a new direction and will in due course announce plans for the team going forward.”

Manchester United’s Class of ’92 recently took control of the club in the summer and vowed to guide the side, currently  in the eighth tier of English football, into the Championship in 15 years.

A new manager is set to be appointed in the coming days with Anthony Johnson, another highly regarded non-league coach, the favourite.
