Sheffield United’s former manager Neil Warnock has ruled out a sensational return to the club, and instead told the Blades hierarchy to give Chris Morgan the job.
The Sheffield Star is claiming that Warnock had been sounded out over a return to the club who he lead into the Premier League back in 2006, but the 66-year-old has now quashed the reports.
Warnock was a guest on Alan Brazil’s Sport Breakfast show on TalkSport this morning and was speaking on his former club.
Warnock said: ‘Those days being a manager have gone for me now.
‘I would like to see the club give the job to Chris Morgan. He has been there or thereabouts, he has taken his coaching badges and he knows the club inside out.
‘If I could help Chris I certainly would.’
Warnock has been out of the game since departing from a short-term spell as the manager of Crystal Palace last Christmas.
Sheffield United are in the market for a new boss following the departure of Nigel Clough yesterday, and MK Dons boss Karl Robinson and Bradford boss Phil Parkinson are amongst the front-runners for the role.
Blades fans… Would you welcome Chris Morgan as the club’s new boss?
