Sheffield United set to sack their manager after dismal start

    Sheffield United are set to sack their manager Slavisa Jokanovic after a dismal start according to reports on Thursday morning.

    The 53 year old Serbian is reportedly expected to depart the Blades with the Championship outfit languishing in 16th place this term.

    Former Watford and Fulham boss Jokanovic was named Chris Wilder’s replacement last summer and had the task of rebuilding the club after a horrid campaign which saw them saw them relegated from the top flight. – Fan reaction to the latest football news, gossip & funnies

    The 53-year-old signed a three-year deal, becoming the club’s first overseas manager. His impressive tenures with the Hornets and Cottagers left fans optimistic that he could get the Blades straight back up.

    However, a lacklustre start to the campaign has seen the Serb’s job hang by a thread, with the Telegraph reporting that he is set to be given his marching orders by the club.

    United’s 1-0 win over strugglers Reading on Tuesday night was their first league victory in five games, and they currently sit eight points adrift of the play-off spots.

    Twitter users reacted with Sheffield United set to sack their manager after a dismal start, see what they said below…

    I sense the conversation went like this…
    Prince: “You have no money for January transfers.”
    SJ: “Okay them. I’m off.”

    @METwedds: I think clubs will be sniffing round Rooney soon…

    @jamesjamesbrown: I watched derby at Fulham last night and they played pretty good football i thought. Fulham missed a few good chances to score but derby rarely looked that ruffled. Just lacked a decent striker.

    @NottsCounty1991: Imagine if Warnock returned lol

    @sarah_WBAx: Bit shocked, Percy is normally spot on, started poorly but thought he’d get a bit more time to turn it round 😬

    @jackellyffc: Crikey!

    @stubbzifc: 2 great management staff 1 gone and the other apparently going when are people gonna realise where the issue is?? Clubs fucked if Jokanovic is gone!

    @Joelbirmz12: Fucking joke

    @S66Quack: Please not Warnock, please not Warnock. #sufc #twitterblades #jokanovic

    @calow4k: if we sack jokanovic this will be the worst decision this club will ever make

    @RoadtolegendsPL: Daniel Farke should get this

    @CallumC203: Has to have someone else lined up then surely

    @StocksColin: Not gonna be cheap and wonder who’s lined up to take over

    @OpinionOfAnOwl: If this is a sacking, then this is shocking from the blades. Jokanovic is a premium manager at this level and needed to be given time. Such a shame…

    @Chris78901: Find this so surprising. Jokanovic with players to suit a 4-2-3-1 is a machine in the Championship. Maybe it was stubbornness/unwillingness to change given the players he inherited were suited to three at the back formations, who knows

    @GuyN72: Difficult job this. Sheff U are suffering a similar fate to us: Made some very poor signings. They’ve also been rinsed by Liverpool. #afcb

    @willbarber95: If this is true – fuckin stupid

    @tomseyms: If he’s decided to leave then not much can be done. But if this is a sacking it’s a mad decision. The football has been pretty awful this season, but he’s also working with a jaded squad that badly needs an overhaul. What next?? #sufc #twitterblades
