Nathan Hemmingham believes Chris Wilder is ideal for West Brom
Yorkshire Live reporter Nathan Hemmingham believes Chris Wilder’s style of play will excite the West Brom faithful should he become the manager.
The West Brom managerial tale has gone through several twists and turns, but it now seems to have come to its final few chapters.
Reliable journalist Joseph Masi reported that the interviews for the job are over, with Michael Appleton and Chris Wilder being the front-runners for the role.
However, Hemmingham, who’s covered the Blades extensively under Wilder explains what he’ll bring to the table for them.
He told Birmingham Live, “United were mid-table in League One and going backwards when Chris arrived, but the whole reason they became a Premier League club was down to Chris and his signings.
“He’s always been a what’s best for the club at the time type of manager and will assess what he gets at West Brom and run with it.
“I would certainly back West Brom to be up there if they appoint Chris, he would really lift the club after relegation and the crowd will love what he brings.”
Wilder’s appointment is certainly one that the fans will get behind. His style of play and leadership skills are things that make him stand out from the other managers in the fray.
He’s also been labelled an ‘outstanding’ manager by arguably the best coach in the world at the moment – Pep Guardiola. [talkSPORT]
We’re hoping that despite him being the second favourite, he’s impressed the decision-makers at the club and they hire him over Appleton – someone who’s still to manage in the Premier League full time.
On the other hand, the former Blades manager comes with top-flight experience and also the know-how to secure promotion – having done it on five different occasions in the past.
Had it not been for a horrendous transfer window last summer, the Blades would still have been in the Premier League. Hopefully, we ace our recruitment under him and ensure we become mainstays in the top flight.
