Why Sheffield United coach Jason Tindall is unlikely to reunite with Eddie Howe at Celtic

Current Sheffield United assistant manager, Jason Tindall, is likely to be linked with a reunion with Eddie Howe.

The pair worked together at Bournemouth for 12 years over two separate spells, guiding the club from League Two to the Premier League.

When Howe left the Cherries following their relegation in 2020, number two Tindall was given the job.

Yet it only lasted six months before the 43-year-old was sacked and he has since made the switch to Bramall Lane.

Tindall is assisting caretaker boss, Paul Heckingbottom, until the end of the season following the departure of Chris Wilder.


Heckingbottom is on the five-man shortlist to replace Wilder on a permanent basis. There is speculation that Tindall is also being considered.

Howe has been without a job since his exit from the Vitality Stadium almost a year ago.

However, it seems that the 43-year-old is about to take his next managerial position.

Howe is on the verge of taking charge of Celtic. According to The Scottish Sun, the only delay is him doing his homework on the Hoops.

Howe is also finalising his backroom staff, with former Bournemouth coaches Stephen Purches and Simon Weatherston expected to join him at Parkhead.

So, could there also be a reunion for Tindall? The likely answer is no.

While the duo have enjoyed great success working together in the past, Tindall is now ready to go it alone.

Having been Cherries boss, he wants to remain as number one in the dugout.

Which means that Tindall is more likely to become the new Blades manager than he is to follow Howe to Glasgow.
