McDermott was told over the weekend that Cellino, whose takeover is not yet done, had over-stepped the mark in dispensing with his services. The Italian also back-tracked over the weekend, saying he wanted McDermott to stay.

After taking legal advice from the League Managers’ Association, the United manager decided to return to work and start planning for the weekend’s game at Yeovil Town.
