Sheffield United Tuesday confirmed it had parted ways with manager Paul Heckingbottom, signalling a desperate attempt to change the tide of a dismal Premier League campaign. 

The Blades find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table, managing a mere 5 points out of a possible 42.

Amidst the tumult, a familiar face is set to take charge, as Chris Wilder, a former Blades favorite, steps into the managerial role. 

Wilder’s return comes with a renewed sense of hope for the struggling club, with a contract extending until the summer of 2025.

Wilder won’t be alone in his endeavor, as he brings aboard a seasoned support team. Alan Knill, Matt Prestridge, and former Republic of Ireland international Keith Andrews are set to assist Wilder.
