STAYING PUT

The Barnsley manager Keith Hill has said that he will not resign from his job, despite the speculation mounting regarding his future at the club due to a poor run of form in the league. The club has had only four victories in the league this season, while they have been able to taste the same only on two occasions since September. This poor run of form has left the team closer to the relegation zone. As a result, it has been thought that the future of the manager is in the consideration from the board, who will be interested in making the change before Christmas.

The club has lost the last four encounters, which have left them in the 20th position. However, the manager has said that he will not resign from the job because he believes in his players and the work he has been doing at the club so far. He has said that improving the results substantially will not be possible without a huge cash injection, while he is aware of support from the chairman. Hill was responsible for leading Barnsley to a 21st place finish in the Championship last season. One of the main objectives for the new season was avoiding relegation, and the manager would take it happily right now.

“I will fight for what I believe in and I believe in the players and what we are trying to do. There’s absolutely no chance that I’ll walk out on this club because I feel we’re ahead of where we should be. You have to ask yourself: ‘would results change if the players changed or if I left?’ Well, not unless there was a huge cash injection,” said the manager. Barnsley’s two victories in the last two months have come in the matches against Birmingham City and Charlton Athletic.
