Elias Sorensen to now get his chance as Carlisle United sack manager?

2 years ago

Not good news for one person but it could signal a real upturn in fortunes for Elias Sorensen.

On Wednesday morning Carlisle United have released an official statement, revealing that manager Steven Pressley has been sacked.

With Carlisle sixth bottom of League Two and only five points clear of relegation and indeed the very bottom spot in the table, not the biggest surprise.

Things certainly can’t get any worse for Elias Sorensen.

Steven Pressley only gave the Newcastle loan striker one start in 17 league games and indeed only 154 minutes in League Two in total, with a handful of brief sub appearances.

Despite Carlisle’s struggles, Pressley refused to give Elias Sorensen the chance to show what he can do.

With now somebody else making the decision on team selection, there is every chance they might try something/somebody different up front.

Only two clubs outside the bottom three have scored less goals than Carlisle.

So good luck to Elias Sorensen on now maybe getting his chance and hopefully if he does, the goals will follow.

Carlisle United official statement:

CLUB STATEMENT: Steven Pressley leaves United

The board of Carlisle United Football Club have decided to make a change and Steven Pressley will leave the club with immediate effect.

Chairman Andrew Jenkins said: “Steven has given his all and has worked tirelessly since the day he joined us.

“We understand the challenges and have supported him throughout, but we haven’t seen the evidence of progress we expected or needed to see.

“This is not something we can allow to continue, so sadly it is time to change, move on and look forward.

“I want to say a personal thank you to Steven, he has been a pleasure to work with and this has not been an easy decision for us to make.

“He leaves with our very best wishes.”

The existing coaching staff will take charge of football matters in the short-term.

There will be no further comment at this stage.’
