Sheffield United fans have been having their say on social media after it appeared that Slavisa Jokanovic was out of the running to replace Chris Wilder.
Per an exclusive report from Yorkshire Live this week, Jokanovic has seemingly not made it onto the list of five managers United have narrowed their search down to.
The news comes as something of a shock. Jokanovic has been top of the bookies’ odds for a while now. He was also someone who Blades fans were open to seeing take the reins. But, for now at least, the former Fulham manager appears to not be under consideration.
Naturally, the news filtered onto social media and Twitter, and it’s safe to say some Blades fans were more than unimpressed with the news.
Twitter and social media might be quiet this weekend due to the ongoing fight against racism and online abuse, but when news of Jokanovic broke, United fans were quick to make their feelings known.
Here, then, is a look at what some Blades supporters had to say in response to the news that Jokanovic will not be the new man in charge at The Lane.

This must be a joke, 2 promotions on his CV must surely be under consideration, worries me which others they have on list.
