Neil Warnock: I'm going over there [GALLO/GETTY]
Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock has left the club by mutual consent following their relegation from the Premier League after one season in the top flight.
 
Sheffield born Warnock had been in charge of the Blades since 1999.
 
United were condemned to the drop on Sunday when, needing to avoid defeat at home to Wigan Athletic, they lost 2-1.
In the 2002-03 season he guided the Yorkshire club to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and League Cup and reached the second division playoff final.
 
He eventually restored United to the top flight after more than 10 years when they finished as second division runners-up in 2006.

They seemed set to retain their status in the Premier League this season when they moved 10 points above the bottom three in mid-February.

However, they soon started sinking when they picked up just eight points in their last 11 games before their final-day relegation.

United is still pursuing possible legal action against the Premier League after relegation rivals West Ham United were handed a $10.93 million fine, rather than a points deduction, for breaching ownership rules over Argentines Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano.

Warnock's departure continues a flurry of managerial changes at the end of the season.

Wigan's Paul Jewell resigned on Monday, while Stuart Pearce was sacked from Manchester City on the same day.

While on Tuesday, Sam Allardyce, who quit Bolton Wanderers with two games of the season remaining, took over at Newcastle United.
