Chris Wilder has left Sheffield United by “mutual consent”. The decision came after his relationship with the club’s owner broke down.
Wilder took over at Bramall Lane in May 2016, and was a fan favorite. He guided the Blades from League One to the Premier League, finished ninth.
“Being manager of Sheffield United has been a special journey and one I’ll never forget,” Wilder said in a statement. “I was delighted to be given the opportunity back in 2016 and have been delighted with the success which we have achieved, including two promotions and a highest ever Premier League finish.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the Club’s accomplishments along the way, including the players, staff and, in particular, the supporters.”
The blades are bottom of the table and are almost sure to be relegated after last season’s fairytale.
