Sheffield United: Fans agree with Wilder that Berge needs ‘time to learn the system’ - Sheffield United

Many Sheffield United fans have agreed with Chris Wilder that new record-signing Sander Berge needs ‘time to learn the system’ (live report via The Star).

The Norwegian international cost £20 million from Belgian side KRC Genk and had made 31 appearances in all competitions for them this season before joining the Blades in January (via Transfermarkt). In that spell, he scored four goals, but has yet to register his first strike for the Sheffield club in four appearances. Despite this, some fans have highlighted his ‘class’ and ‘skill’ and agree with Wilder that he needs more time to fully adjust to the Premier League.

Blades fans may see the youngster in action against Serbia on the 26th March, where the Scandinavian nation will be hoping to progress through the tie and all the way to the Euros. Fans may also take a glimpse at exciting prospect Erik Haaland who played in Berge’s Champions League group for RB Salzburg before joining Borussia Dortmund in January. If Norway progress Berge will certainly be a player the Blades fans will want to keep an eye on in the summer at Euro 2020.

These Blades fans expressed their agreement with Wilder on Twitter and want to give Berge more time to adapt, with one fan claiming ‘nobody should be criticising him at all’:
