SHEFFIELD UNITED have sacked Slavisa Jokanovic.
The former Fulham boss was only appointed by the Blades back in May.
But following an inconsistent start to the season, United have opted to get rid – hiring last season’s caretaker Paul Heckingbottom on a permanent basis until 2026..
In a brutal article that features a picture of Heckingbottom rather than Jokanovic, the Serb is hardly even mentioned.
They wrote: “Sheffield United and Slaviša Jokanović have parted company, with Paul Heckingbottom installed as the club’s football manager.
“Yorkshireman Heckingbottom takes charge of the club’s football business immediately after agreeing a contract through to the end of the 2025/26 season.
“He will begin by leading training at the Randox Health Academy on Friday and be in position for Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture with Bristol City.
“Following several months of strategic planning and a lacklustre start to the season, the board decided that a change was in the best long-term interests of the club.”
