Sheffield United plc chairman Kevin McCabe believes Robson is the man to lead the Blades back into the Barclays Premiership. He said: “Bryan is an experienced manager but also as we all know was a fantastic player, and we believe he is the manager who will blend the squad and improve Sheffield United and lead us back to where we rightfully belong, in the Premiership, in a short space of time.
“He will have the support of the board to fulfil that ambition. We aim to be in the top 10 in the Premiership at least within the next three to five years.”
