Sheffield United Have Sacked Slavisa Jokanovic And Appointed Paul Heckingbottom As Manager

Jokanovic was appointed on a three-year deal in May but only oversaw 22 games in his near six-month spell in charge.

Heckingbottom, who is promoted from his role as U23s manager, was placed in interim charge of the Blades after Chris Wilder left after almost five years in charge in March.

Sheffield United, relegated from the Championship last season, sit 16th in the Championship on 23 points, having won at Reading on Tuesday in the final game of Jokanovic’s tenure.

In a club statement, they said the decision to part company with Jokanovic followed “several months of strategic planning and a lacklustre start to the season.”
