Chris Wilder

Sheffield United have confirmed they have parted company with manager Chris Wilder ‘by mutual consent’.

In a statement, the club said: “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.”

The 53-year-old has been in the Blades dugout since May 2016 and took charge of one of the most glorious reigns in the club’s history. After a splendid ninth-place finish in the top flight, United look set for relegation to the Championship, 12 points behind fourth-bottom Brighton and with only 10 matches remaining.
