Sheffield Wednesday legend ‘resigns’ from managerial role in extraordinary interview
One of Sheffield Wednesday’s greatest-ever players appears to have announced his resignation from his latest managerial role in extraordinary fashion.
Speaking after his Swindon Town side fell to a 4-1 defeat at MK Dons, Owls legend John Sheridan told BBC Wiltshire “I’m going to resign”.
Sheridan played for Wednesday for seven years, writing himself into club history when he scored the goal that won the Owls the Rumbelows Cup in 1991.
He joined Swindon in November last year. It was, incredibly, the fourth club he had managed in 2020 after Chesterfield, Waterford and Wigan Athletic.
With four matches left in their season the Robins lie bottom of the League One table, three points shy of safety. After winning back-to back games at the end of March, they are on a run of five consecutive defeats.
Wednesday fans joined in support of Sheridan at the desperately sad news he lost both parents over Christmas.
