Danny Wilson doesn’t think that he will be sacked by the Barnsley board if he fails to save the side from the humiliation of relegation.
Wilson had taken charge at Barnsley towards the end of the last year after the axing of David Flitcroft, but he is yet to repay the faith shown in him by the club owners. He hasn’t been able to take the team’s performances on a high and it looks like that the Tykes will have to play in the League One next season.
However, according to the reports, there is no danger of Wilson getting sacked as the board is backing him and that’s why, he has been given the permission to include two new members of his choice in the coaching staff.
This is not the first time that Wilson has been managing Barnsley. He has been at the Oakwell before as a manager. That was long time back though. He had left the club in 1998 after 4-year tenure.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Wilson said, “Obviously, it’s a challenge for us to keep ourselves in the Championship, but, it’s not impossible. It’s very much doable and we are determined to do it.”
“As far as I am concerned, I can see myself here next summer as well. I am familiar to this place and I’ve had a great time here since returning.”
“I want to take this club to a really high level. It would not happen overnight. It would be a long process, but, the job that is in our hands at the moment is to get through the ongoing season. I hope the season ends well for us.”
Barnsley’s next match is against the Brighton & Hove Albion on 5th of April.
