Chris Wilder revealed that he is ready to return to football management and admits to picking the brains of some of the top managers in the Premier League. The former Sheffield United coach took the club from League One to a finish in the top half of the Premier league. His second campaign was a turbulent one with Sheffield being relegated from the league. He left Sheffield in march. This has been the longest spell that wilder has been out of management. He believes that the break has allowed him to reflect before his next challenge.
“It’s the first time in a long time, over 20 years [being out of management], so I miss it, but I think the word is reflection,” Chris Wilder said about his return to football. “Reflecting on achievements – because it’s been a great period at a club that I love, supporters that I adored working for, players that I really enjoyed working with, staff that was all together.”
“Reflection of the stuff that we did well and the stuff we didn’t do so well; I think it’s important for any manager or coach to do that. It was important I did that over the period of time I was working, maybe not just at Sheffield United,” he added. “It did go well for so long but unfortunately there was a period of time where it didn’t go as well as we would have liked for various reasons – some that we can control, that I’ll look back on in that reflection.”
