Swindon Town are set to appoint former West Ham striker Teddy Sheringham as their new manager.
BBC Radio 5 live’s senior football reporter, Ian Dennis, says Sheringham will be the replacement for Luke Williams, who resigned last month. Sheringham had a spell in charge of League Two Stevenage in 2015-16 but was sacked after 33 games.
Swindon will start next season in League Two having been relegated last term after winning only 11 of 46 games. Sheringham has been out of management since leaving Stevenage – his first managerial job – in February 2016 after winning just seven of his games as boss.
Swindon won just seven of 31 games following former Spurs boss Sherwood’s arrival in November 2016.
Always thought he would break through as a manager. Happy memories from his time with us. Often he came on when we were struggling& basically seemed to take over the organisation. Usually turned the game round too. But you can never tell…I would have doubts that he is single minded enough to be a top manager. The best seem to be football obsessive.
