John Sheridan's Swindon Departure Continues Crazy Managerial Run

John Sheridan's Swindon Departure Continues Crazy Managerial Run

John Sheridan has resigned from his role as Swindon Town manager, with the club looking doomed to relegation from League One.

The team remain rooted to the bottom of the division after yesterday's 4-1 loss to AFC Wimbledon, finding themselves seven points from safety with only four games remaining.

The former Republic of Ireland international would offer his resignation immediately after that contest, telling the BBC after the game that another manager would have a better chance of keeping the team up:

It's a difficult decision for me to make but they've still got a little chance of staying in this league.

There are four games to go and hopefully someone can come in and work a miracle and pick the team up and try to get a few results.

It's time someone else gets an opportunity and hopefully they can turn it around.

Sheridan only joined Swindon in November of 2020, while leaving his post at Wigan Athletic to take up the job. It's fair to say he hasn't managed to stick around at clubs for too long in recent years.

In fact since his departure from Plymouth in 2015, this is the length of each of the 56-year old's managerial spells.

Sheridan's eight-game spell at Waterford in 2020 was filled with controversy, with the former Leeds player accused of disrespecting the League of Ireland by then Dundalk boss Vinnie Perth.

We have no idea where Sheridan will rock up next, but it's fair to say he probably won't last too long wherever it is.
