Danny Wilson has returned to one of his former clubs, Sheffield United, to bring in Chris Morgan as a first-team coach.

Whilst in charge at Bramall Lane Wilson had Morgan, a long-term player with Sheffield United before he was forced to retire in 2010, as part of his coaching team with his appointment confirmed this week.

On this move Wilson told the Official Website.

‘Chris has been a very loyal and hardworking individual throughout his career. He is reliable and dependable and he commands respect in the dressing room. As well as being a good organiser, with bags of energy, Chris has a great sense of humour so he is able to relax people. I have no doubt the players will respond well to his coaching methods.’

Not only does Wilson know the 38-year-old from his time at Sheffield United he was known to him some years back when he was a youngster during his (Wilson’s) first spell in charge of Barnsley, where the defender started out before signing for the Blades in 2003 and going on to make over 250 appearances for them.

When Wilson left Bramall Lane Morgan actually stepped up to replace him in a caretaker capacity (a role he’s twice filled) with the chance to work in the first-team set up at Chesterfield something he couldn’t turn down despite his affinity with the Blades.
