Bryan Robson: Looking to give Sheffield United a new direction [GALLO/GETTY]

Bryan Robson is favourite to become Sheffield United's new manager on Tuesday.
The Blades have called a news conference to announce a replacement for Neil Warnock, who resigned after the club was relegated from the Premier League on the final day of the season.
Robson, who has been out of the game since being fired by West Bromwich Albion in September, is widely expected to get the job, with Brian Kidd as his assistant.
"I enjoy the management side and the coaching of the players," Robson said on Sunday.

"Sheffield United are a big club and that's the type of challenge that I would be looking for."

The 50-year-old Robson has experience in guiding a club to the Premier League, having done so with Middlesbrough in 1995 and 1998.

He also kept West Brom in the Premier League in 2005, but the Baggies were relegated in 2006.

Robson began his playing career in 1974 with West Brom.

He moved to Manchester United in 1981 and stayed with the Red Devils for 13 years before finishing off his career with four years at Middlesbrough.

Dubbed "Captain Marvel" while at Manchester United he also managed Bradford.
