Paul Heckingbottom and Jason Tindall temporarily in charge of Sheffield after Chris Wilder parts with the club.

Published on


Sheffield United have confirmed that the club will not appoint a new coach before the end of the summer. The former Bournemouth coach Tindall will partner with Heckingbottom to steer the club in the remaining part of the season. With Tindall keen to return to a management role, he faces a uphill task to keep Sheffield up.

A club released a statement confirming Chris Wilder’s departure. The statement read:

“Sheffield United confirms that Chris Wilder has left the Club by mutual consent.
“The Board and Chris Wilder, who has managed the Blades to more than 100 wins in his almost five years at Bramall Lane, made the decision following discussions. Earlier this season, Chris Wilder surpassed 200 league games in charge of the Blades, becoming the sixth United manager to reach this milestone.

“We are confident that all Blades fans around the world will join us in thanking Chris for his hard work, commitment and expertise in driving the Club. Now the Club will turn its attention to completing the season as strongly as possible and if we are relegated, to preparing for the Championship.

“We confirm our intention to keep the core of the player group together and will continue to invest further in the Academy and the First Team, to place us in the best possible position for the future.”

Chris Wilder said that serving as Sheffield United manager has been a special journey to him that he will never forget. He said:

“I was delighted to be given the opportunity back in 2016 and have been delighted with the success which we have achieved, including two promotions and the highest ever Premier League finish.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the Club’s accomplishments along the way, including the players, staff and, in particular, the supporters.”

For some bizarre reason, Chris Wilder did not have an opportunity to say goodbye to his squad. Oli McBurnie took Twitter to express his gratitude to the outgoing boss. He said it’s a sad day for the club to see wilder depart. He thanked the former boss for all he did for him together with his family and the fantastic moment they shared on the pitch. He concluded by saying sorry for how they let him down.
