Bradford winger Omar Daley has urged crestfallen manager Stuart McCall to change his mind over his threat to quit the club.

McCall revealed last month he would walk away from Valley Parade if the Bantams failed to reach the play-offs and with a top-seven finish all but mathematically beyond his side, the former Sheffield United coach will announce his decision following a meeting with the board at the end of the season.

Daley, who is out until November following surgery to repair cruciate ligament damage, told the Telegraph and Argus: "If anyone knows the gaffer, he's a winner. It must be so frustrating for him to see the position the team is in."

He added: "He's a young manager who is eager to achieve big things and I think he will. The understanding between the gaffer and me has been really good. He might be on the sideline but he coaches with a passion.

"At first when he'd just come in, I didn't realise that and I used to get angry whenever he said things to me. But I soon realised that he is a passionate coach and needed you to do well.

"Hopefully the situation will be resolved quickly - and I'm hoping he's going to still be at this club because he's really settled me in."
