Neil Harris has sung the praises of Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder after the Blades chief was voted Championship Manager of the Season.

And the Lions chief has also picked out Norwich City’s German head coach Daniel Farke for credit too.

Wilder will pick up his award at the EFL awards night on April 7.

Harris said: “I won’t say who I picked and break confidence in that. But I’m delighted for Chris Wilder and think him and Daniel Farke have done a fantastic job.

“Anyone at the top of the league has done a great job, of course they have.

“But what I will say about Daniel Farke and Chris Wilder is that they won’t have the budgets like a lot of other teams around them in the division. Someone like Alex Neil at Preston, if he keeps their run going, is having a fantastic season.

“What is success? Success is measured on what your budget is, the players at your disposal that you have got to pick from and where you are in the league.

“With Chris and Daniel maybe expectations were not there for them to occupy the top two spots in May. They have done fantastic jobs.

“Chris is a good football manager who manages with his heart on his sleeve. He loves working at Sheffield United and I’m really pleased for him.”
