Sheffield's Warnock reaches managerial milestone

SHEFFIELD, England, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock will take charge of his 1,000th game as a manager when he takes his side to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Warnock, who guided the club he supported as a boy to the Premier League last season, is proud of his longevity in a notoriously precarious line of work.

'I've been out of work for three weeks since 1980 as a manager and that takes some doing really,' Warnock told reporters. 'It's a great achievement and I'm really proud of it because I never thought I'd achieve a thousand games, if I'm honest. I don't think you can get by without being good at your job and I think I'm incredibly good at my job.

'When I look back at managing Todwick in the Sheffield Sunday League and then Gainsborough and Scarborough in the non-league, there are some fantastic memories. I think I've brought an awful lot of pleasure to the clubs I've managed.'

Warnock admits there have been some low points in his managerial career which has also taken in spells at Notts County, Torquay, Huddersfield, Plymouth, Oldham and Bury. He revealed that he had twice offered to leave Sheffield United since taking charge in December 1999.

'There have been a couple of occasions when I've spoken to my chairman, Kevin McCabe, and said: 'Is it easier for you if I leave?' But he's always been strong and supported me,' Warnock said.

Sheffield United are without a win after their opening five Premier League matches, but Warnock said he was not too concerned so early in season.

'I think we should have got a result in most of the games we've played in so far,' said the 57-year-old. 'If we're in this situation after 20 games, I'm in big trouble, but I think we can give a good account of ourselves once our horrific injury problems are out of the way.'
