Bizarre Departure

The announcement of Wilder’s departure came as a shock to several football fans. According to The Athletic,¬†tensions have been mounting behind the scenes, with the 53-year-old reportedly unwilling to work with a director of football.

As a result, talks have been ongoing surrounding his departure. An announcement is reportedly imminent, while the official club Twitter account has not posted since March 11.

Wilder joined the club in 2016 and has overseen a remarkable turnaround in the club’s fortunes. He has led the club from League One to the Premier League, enjoying two promotions and a ninth placed finish in the top-flight last season.

Despite the disappointment of this season – the Blades are currently bottom of the Premier League with just 14 points – Wilder will undoubtedly go down as one of the best managers in the history of the club.

Jason Tindall Appointment

Tindall’s role at Bramall Lane is currently unknown. Yorkshire Live is reporting that he will take over as manager until the end of the season, while Andy Giddings of BBC Radio Sheffield and Talksport are reporting that he will join in a coaching capacity.

As a result, this could mean that he and Paul Heckingbottom will take a joint managerial role until the end of the season. Heckingbottom is currently the manager of the Blades’ U23’s, and is expected to take charge tomorrow against Leicester City.

Tindall has been an assistant for much of his coaching career, but his first role came last summer with Bournemouth.

However, it did not end successfully. Tindall lasted just 31 games before he was sacked at the beginning of February.
