Sheffield United boss Wilder’s ‘do-gooders and lefties’ rant leaves fans bemused

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has left fans baffled after ranting about “do-gooders and lefties” during his latest press conference.

The Blades boss sees his side 14 points away from safety with 14 matches remaining this season, with a crunch clash against Fulham this weekend.

And in his pre-match press conference, he caused a stir during his rant about criticism that he has been receiving.

The 53-year-old began his comments by saying: “People talk about not being allowed to say this or that to them.

“I’m not bothered in psychologists or do-gooders or lefties, I don't know what you're allowed to say.
“I’m the football manager, so I’m saying it as it is."

The comments were included on a video posted by Sheffield United on Twitter, but were subsequently edited out following the bemused reaction of supporters.

“You OK mate,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “Chris Wilder having a normal one. Those bloody lefties getting his team relegated .”

And a third simply added: “Wilder has gone a bit Brexit.”

With a fourth added: “This is wild!”

A final supporter held nothing back, with: “And there goes my like for Chris Wilder. Man doesn’t believe in the concept of psychologists.

“Enjoy relegation Chris.”

Wilder admits that his side will be feeling the heat from him if they continue to make errors which push them closer to relegation.

“Go and sit in Liverpool’s changing room, can you imagine what they’re saying. Go and sit in Manchester United’s changing room, Man City’s," he said.

“Go and ask Kyle Walker what it’s like in their changing room.
