Morgan has no interest in taking Sheffield United job

Chris Morgan insists he has no interest in taking the managerial job at Sheffield United on a permanent basis.

David Weir was sacked earlier this month despite only landing the job at the League One club in the summer, and Morgan has been appointed as his replacement on an interim basis. Following a defeat at Coventry City, the temporary boss picked up his first three points after a 2-1 win against 10-man Port Vale on Saturday.

This has prompted talk that the former Blades defender, who spent nine years at the club as a player, could take the role on a permanent basis, which would likely go down well with the supporters. However, the 35-year-old, speaking ahead of the trip to Peterborough United, insists he has no interest in taking the job full-time.

“The club’s been working very hard behind the scenes, but I’m not interested in wanting the job long term,” he told Sky Sports News. “I’ve already spoken to the chairman and I will get behind the new manger when the time comes. While we’re in charge my job is to get the players more confident to kick on.”

Only goal difference is keeping United out of the relegation zone at the moment, having collected just eight points from a possible 36. They go to London Road on Tuesday to take on the Posh, who are one of the favourites for promotion and are just one place and a single point behind leaders Leyton Orient.
