Dave Bassett on his remarkable managerial double

'Harry' was recently voted as Wimbledon's Greatest Manager of all time

23 May 2020

An interesting interview with Dave Bassett about his achievements at two clubs was today published in the Daily Mirror.

The man who guided Wimbledon from the old Fourth Division to the top-flight in the 1980s was recently voted by supporters as the club's Greatest Manager of all-time in our online poll. But Wimbledon is not the only club where 'Harry' is revered for his achievements. Three years ago he was also voted as Sheffield United's greatest manager of all time.

Speaking to Mike Walters, Dave said: “It's nice to be held in high regard by more than one set of fans. Does it matter? Of course it does – ask any manager and he will tell you it's better to get the accolades than the sack.

“But to win those two polls among the supporters at different clubs means something. It shows you were doing something right.”
