Bramall Lane: Home of Sheffield United(credit: Wikipedia
Sheffield United caretaker boss John Carver is refusing to let thoughts of a permanent position enter his head just yet.
Carver has taken charge of the Blades following Gary Speed’s decision to leave earlier this week, and chief executive Trevor Birch has hinted that the 45-year-old could land the job full-time if he impresses.
But Carver is refusing to get carried away, claiming he has learned his lesson from a similar situation at Leeds United years ago.
He said: “I'm here to do a job and whatever job the club say they want me to do I'll do it as long as it's within reason.
“Anybody would be mad not to want to have a job at this football club. I will do whatever job is put in front of me for the time being.
“There is a part of everybody who wants to be a manager but it's about picking the right time. I don't want to get too far ahead of myself.
“When I was at Leeds I got ahead of myself and I have learned from that so that's why I am going to take this nice and steady and do the job the club ask of me.
“I am not getting carried away with myself, it is dead easy to do it. What will be will be, if anything develops it develops and if doesn't I'll move on and do what I need to do.
“I've got a huge challenge but it's something I am looking forward to. Gary got together a fantastic group of staff, they are very professional and I have got the full support of those guys.”
