Melbourne City have finally settled on a new manager, appointing former Manchester United reserves and Wigan Athletic boss Warren Joyce.
Joyce’s most recent job was with the soon-to-be relegated Latics in November 2016, but he lasted little over five months, collecting just six wins of a possible 24.
As well as the Wigan job, Joyce, 52, has managed Royal Antwerp and United’s reserves team, a position he held for six years.
Very early days still, but the jury seems be out on the appointment.
Warren Joyce is the new manager of Melbourne city FC. Hate to say but they have done well

Warren Joyce quite an interesting appointment, loved by Yanited fans but didn’t leave any good impressions in his short Wigan stint

Warren Joyce will be City’s very own Jim Magilton. #aleague

Very underwhelmed by Melbourne City’s choice of coach. Opportunity missed to bring an exciting marquee name to the #aleague.
