Sheffield United: Blades fans wax lyrical over Billy Sharp’s son’s Gazza tribute

Sheffield United: Blades fans wax lyrical over Billy Sharp’s son’s Gazza tribute - Sheffield United

Many Sheffield United supporters have been raving about Billy Sharp’s son after the striker posted footage of the boy recreating Paul Gascoigne’s memorable free kick for Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final in 1991. 

Steaming in from a long run up, Gascoigne thumped the ball towards the top corner, and Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman was powerless to prevent the ferocious strike from crashing into the back of the net, despite getting some fingertips to it (Daily Mail).

Football fans all around the world have been trying to find ways to entertain themselves amid the ongoing pandemic. Sharp’s offspring has been practising his dead ball drills in the back garden, complete with training mannequins and target hoops.

After returning to Bramall Lane in the summer of 2015 for only £635k, Sharp helped Chris Wilder’s side achieve promotion from the Championship, bagging 23 goals in 40 games for United last season. The 34-year-old has scored 3 goals in 18 appearances in the Premier League for the Blades this campaign (WhoScored).

It is fair to say Sharp’s child still has quite some way to go before he can fill his father’s boots, but scouts should definitely keep a close eye on him in the future.

Predictably, loads of United fans replied to the fan favourite’s tweet, with several urging the board to sign the youngster up. One supporter remarked he is the “real deal“, whilst others labelled the clip as “superb” and “quality.”

Take a look at some of the glowing reactions down below…
