WATCH: '˜Sheffield United's Chris Wilder is Manager of the Century' insists fellow boss
Chris Wilder has been hailed as the '˜manager of the century' by fellow boss Phil Brown after promotions at Oxford, Northampton and hometown club Sheffield United.
Brown made the comment on tonight’s Football on 5 show, after highlights of United’s 2-1 victory over Reading that kept them third in the Championship after promotion from League One last term.
“We have three examples of teams promoted from our division last season, in Sheffield United, Millwall and Bolton,” Brown said.
“One’s right at the top and has been all season, one’s in the middle and one’s right at the bottom. I think it’s momentum with United - it’s a big club and the whole support is going along with it - but Chris Wilder has got to be manager of the century.
