Following a unanimous vote by shareholders, the Blades finally returned to Shirecliffe earlier this week, and players have been training in small groups, sticking to the government’s guidelines on social distancing.

Breaking into the Premier League at the start of the season, Wilder’s men find themselves in the top half of the table in seventh place, tied with Wolverhampton Wanderers on 43 points, and only two points behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United. Indeed, the South Yorkshire outfit have a crucial game in hand over their nearest rivals.

The club’s official Twitter account tweeted a “great” excerpt from the interview, prompting loads of reactions from excited Blades fans. One supporter tweeted they are “so proud” while another added “Wolves have no chance.”
