Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has revealed that he would only consider resigning from his post if it was the ‘right thing’ for the club.
The 53-year-old has been in charge at Bramall Lane since 2016, leading the Blades from League One all the way to the Premier League. He also masterminded a fantastic first season in the top flight, with Sheffield United finishing ninth and only five points off of the UEFA Europa League places.
However, it has been considerably more difficult this season, with the Blades now bottom of the table with just one point from the opening 12 matches of the campaign, seeing the pressure pile on Wilder.
Despite that, he insists that he is not thinking of departing the club.
He said: “I’d only do that if I thought it was the right thing for Sheffield United, that’s the only time I would do that. The club means far too much for me for it to be about me. It’s about what happens for the club.
“Whether people above me are giving me their support, or the decisions or whatever, I understand and respect that. I’m working away. As seen in last night’s performance there is still plenty of heart and spirit in this group.”
Sheffield United have another chance to earn their first league win of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday. The Blades sit at a price of 9/2 with William Hill to claim three points.
