On Saturday evening Sheffield Wednesday legend, John Sheridan, quit his role as Swindon Town manager.

The former Owls midfielder, who played at Hillsborough between 1989 and 1996, announced his resignation in a post-match interview, following a 4-1 defeat to AFC Wimbledon.

He leaves The Robins bottom of the Sky Bet League One table, with 21 defeats in 33 games.

Prior to his stint with the Wiltshire club, he started the campaign in charge of Wigan Athletic, where he lost ten of his 15 games in charge.

This most recent departure is the latest in a long line for Sheridan, who has switched clubs 10 times since 2015.

During his playing career, the former midfielder won the League Cup with the Owls in 1991, as well as reaching the 1993 FA Cup final.

His only pieces of silverware as a manager came with Chesterfield, winning League Two in 2011 and the EFL Trophy a year later.

As he searches for a new role, Sheridan may need to drop down to League Two, or even non-league.

However, a move to Ireland could also be on the cards, with Dundalk reportedly interested in appointing the former Waterford manager.

Would you like to see Sheridan in charge at Hillsborough at some point in the future?
