The aftermath of the shock loss against Tottenham… Sheffield’s ‘bed football’ manager considered for sacking

 Sheffield United, who suffered a shocking come-from-behind defeat in the away game to Tottenham Hotspur and could not survive extra time in the second half, is considering replacing their manager.

Britain’s Daily Mirror reported on the 17th (Korean time), “Sheffield United is considering the possibility of bringing back former manager Chris Wilder, the club’s legend.”

Sheffield United, who were promoted to the Premier League ahead of this season, have not won a single game in five games. The only point earned was the 1 point earned in a 2-2 draw against Everton in the 4th round. Currently ranked 17th. It looks like the team has been classified in the relegation zone after 5 games.

The trip to Tottenham on the 16th was shocking. Sheffield United, who withstood Tottenham’s onslaught by building a strong defensive wall, took the lead with Gustavo Hammer’s first goal in the 28th minute of the second half.

They maintained a one-goal lead until the end of regular time in the second half and seemed to have secured three points, but they were unable to withstand the extra time of 12 minutes. Richarlison equalized in the 8th minute of added time in the second half, and Dejan Kulusevski scored a comeback goal in the 10th minute, dropping the score to 1-2.

The Daily Mail explained, “Coach Paul Heckingbottom, who has suffered four losses (in five games), is in a serious situation.”

Coach Heckingbottom led Sheffield United 메이저사이트to promotion to the Premier League, but is losing trust from the board due to a poor start to the season. Additionally, local soccer fans criticized coach Hecking Bottom and his players for intentionally wasting time during the game against Tottenham Hotspur.

Former manager Wilder is a legendary figure who started out as a supporter at Sheffield United and worked his way up to player manager. He took the team from the third division to the Premier League, and even competed in mid-table in his first year in the Premier League.

However, he resigned as coach in March 2021, struggling in the relegation zone in the 2020-21 season.

Coach Wilder, who was later appointed to Championship Middlesbrough, was notified of his dismissal in October last year when the team fell into the relegation zone.

After taking charge of Championship Watford last March, he left the team as soon as the season ended and is currently looking for a new team.

According to sources, Manager Wilder is already considering a return to Sheffield United. The relationship with the club’s owner, Prince Abdullah, was not good, but has changed positively in recent months, which also increases the possibility of Wilder being appointed as manager.

Sheffield United will play Newcastle United in the 6th round of the Premier League on the 25th.
