Neil Warnock: Why return to management? Because I’m hooked on the buzz – it’s why we keep coming back when the only certainty is the sack
13 December 2013 05:58 PM
Looking at the managerial merry-go-round the last few weeks, with eight managers fired in 24 days, you must wonder what keeps us coming back for more. I suppose the answer is the satisfaction you get out of it – not just winning a game, but achieving something like promotion or staying up. The buzz you get from that you can’t really put into words. The adrenalin it delivers can be addictive. That feeling you have when the whistle blows and you’ve done what you set out to do… you miss it when you’re not in the game. That is why I was tempted last week when Milan Mandaric asked me to consider taking over Sheffield Wednesday.
