Another blow for the Blues as coach John Sheridan set to quit after just seven games: reports
Waterford FC look to have suffered yet another blow amid reports John Sheridan’s short, albeit tumultous, managerial stint at Waterford is already coming to an end.
The former Republic of Ireland international hit headlines last month after he was accused of calling the League of Ireland a ‘pub league’ during a game against Dundalk.
Now, after just seven games in charge of Waterford, it appears as though Sheridan is leaving Waterford for a new role in England.
The Irish Examiner and The Irish Sun are reporting the Blues coach is set to accept the managerial position at League One side Wigan Athletic.
Wigan have been without a manager since Paul Cook walked away from the club at the end of last season, one which saw them suffer relegation from the Championship after being handed a points deduction.
This will come as a significant blow to Waterford after Sheridan managing to bring the club to fifth in the league since his appointment in July.
