Wilder: Sheffield Utd return an opportunity I couldn’t turn down

Sheffield United have announced that Chris Wilder is the new manager of the football club.

Wilder is a legend at the Blades and his return has been long mooted in the press.

The Premier League minnows sacked Paul Heckingbottom after a 5-0 loss to Burnley at the weekend.

Wilder told sufc.co.uk: “Quite simply it was an opportunity which I just couldn’t turn down. Just like in 2016, when this club comes calling, it is not something you pass up.

“This is Sheffield United, it is my team and I am thrilled to be back. We find ourselves in a difficult position, I understand that, but I think I can make a difference.

“When I received the call from Stephen (Bettis) asking if I would consider coming back to try and help, I didn’t have to think about it. People know what this club means to me, and the task now is to try and provide a boost to improve our current situation.

“My relationship with Prince Abdullah and the board was repaired a long time ago. After some time passed following my initial departure, we spoke, met in person and there was an amicable ending. Now, coming back as manager, to know there is a united front again is crucial as we look to work together to improve the club’s position in the Premier League.”
