Manager frustrated with Sheffield United board

Sheffield United are currently enduring a challenging run in the Premier League, having gone nine matches without a win. The team is grappling with a multitude of significant injury issues among its first-team players. In addition, several of manager Paul Heckingbottom’s summer signings have yet to make a substantial impact, which has prompted speculation about his future.


This has sparked frustration on the terraces as well as with Heckingbottom and in a recent conversation with Yorkshire Live, the Blades manager admitted that both he and the players share some regrets regarding the club’s summer transfer strategy.


“The success we’ve had over the last two years has been vitally important for this club to help its future. We had to make decisions this summer for the future of the club, not about short-term performance.”


The Blades have picked up one point in nine games after effectively writing off the first couple of matches because the squad was nowhere near ready for the Premier League. A couple of months on since then, the readiness of the squad has regressed because 11 players are out injured.


There has been reports over the past few days regarding the future of Paul Heckingbottom with rumours circulating on social media that former manager Chris Wilder will be reappointed if Heckingbottom is indeed sacked.
