Salford City has announced the signing of Karl Robinson as their new first-team head coach.

The ex-Oxford United manager replaces Neil Wood, who was sacked last week following a 5-1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers.

Karl Robinson, 43, has experience in the Football League with MK Dons, Oxford and Charlton Athletic.

He won promotion to the Championship and two appearances in the League One Play-offs with the Dons, with another two with Oxford.

Under Sam Allardyce, his most recent role was as assistant manager at Leeds United in May 2023.

Robinson holds a 40.3 win percentage during his time as a manager, taking charge of a total of 694 games.

CEO Nicky Butt said: “We are delighted to welcome Karl to Salford City as our new head coach. Throughout the interview and appointment process he impressed us with his wealth of knowledge and ability.

“Salford City’s ambition is to play as high up in the Football League as possible so when we entered the recruitment process we felt it was important for us to appoint someone with experience of managing at a higher level, and Karl’s long-term vision for the club, drive and determination excited us.”

Fans will be able to hear from their new manager in an interview with the club later today.
