Chris Wilder has huge praise for Nottingham Forest legend ahead of crucial Championship tie

Published

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has spoken of his admiration for Nottingham Forest legend and former manager Brian Clough. 

In an interview for the Sheffield Star with James Sheild, the Blades boss was speaking about Clough and his achievements, and insisted it ‘will never be matched’ in terms of what he did as a manager of Forest in the 80s and early 90s.

Wilder also insisted it was ‘a shame for football’ that we might never see a manager like Clough again, and hinted that ‘the cheque book’ has taken away some of the vital elements of the game which made Clough so great, including recruitment and tactics.

The Blades manager is a known admirer of Clough, who delivered two European Cups in succession for the Reds, a feat which has yet to be matched by any English club and was only matched last season by European giants Real Madrid.

United take on Forest today at Bramall Lane knowing a win will put them right back in contention for a playoff spot following their impressive midweek win over Burton.

Wilder will no doubt be hoping to draw on some of the management techniques of his idol Clough in the Blades’ season run-in as they look to secure a second successive promotion.

Blades fans, what are your memories of Clough? Does Wilder draw resemblences? Let us know!
