Former Fleetwood Town manager John Sheridan could be set to return to management with Salford City.

The National League North side are on the lookout for a new manager and Sheridan is reportedly high up on a list of potential managerial targets for the club.

Fleetwood have replaced Sheridan with Joey Barton, who makes his first foray into management with this job with the Cod Army.

Sheridan left his last club Fleetwood despite keeping the club – who were near relegation when he took over – in the league.

The manager himself is keen to get back into management as quickly as possible – meaning that he could indeed take the Salford job if they make a move for him.

Sheridan said to the Blackpool Gazette: “I want to stay in managing. If someone feels I can do a job for them, hopefully I can do it.

“It is a very tough job and you are very fortunate if you get the opportunity to manage, you have got to take it with both hands. I’m looking for work and hopefully something will come along.”

Sheridan is an experienced football manager, having managed six different teams (including five stints in charge at Oldham Athletic). As a manager, he’s won the League 2 title during his time at the helm of Chesterfield and he also won the Football League Trophy with the club.

He’s certainly an experienced contender in the running for the Salford job and he’s joined in candidate list by Graham Alexander, who himself is an experienced Football League manager.
