Assistant Manager

Alan Knill

Backroom Staff


Knill, a former boss of Rotherham, Bury and Scunthorpe, joined the Blades as Wilder's number two in May 2016 after assisting him during his time in charge at Northampton Town. A defender in his playing days, which saw him capped by Wales once, Knill is a highly-respected coach and has played an instrumental role in United's recent successes. Like Wilder, he signed a new deal, with an extension in August 2017.
