Cambridge United head coach linked with exit after 14 games in favour of a return to Millwall





Head coach Neil Harris is reportedly set to leave Cambridge United and make a shock return to Millwall.

Harris has taken charge of 14 games in all competitions since arriving at the Cledara Abbey Stadium in early November following the departure of Mark Bonner.

But after five wins, three draws and six defeats, it appears that Harris is ready to call time on his short tenure.

Widespread speculation is claiming that the 46-year-old has agreed to rejoin Championship outfit Millwall, who are expected to part company with their boss Joe Edwards later today.

While there is no official word from either club at present, it is believed that Harris – who is Millwall’s all-time leading goalscorer and was their manager between 2015 and 2019 – informed the Cambridge squad of his impending departure after last night’s 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Bolton Wanderers. He was seen after the final whistle shaking hands with the substitutes that were being put through their paces by the fitness staff before carrying out his post-match media duties.

If Harris is to leave, he will depart with the U’s sitting 17th in the Sky Bet League One table, six points above the relegation zone ahead of this weekend’s home derby against Peterborough United.
