George Baldock has insisted Sheffield United will be ‘100% ready to play’ if and when the government declare it safe to return next month, according to the club’s official account.
Football across most of the world is currently suspended due to the ongoing pandemic, although the Premier League is putting plans in motion to resume in June, in a scheme known as ‘Project Restart.’
Speaking to the club’s website, Baldock said: “I can only tell you what the lads here are saying. I’ve not seen one person say they don’t want to play. Everyone can’t wait.”
After achieving promotion from the Championship at the start of the season, Chris Wilder’s Blades find themselves at the top end of the table, tied with Wolves on 43 points, but with a crucial game in-hand.
Ever since he arrived at the South Yorkshire outfit from MK Dons for a mere £666k, the 27-year-old has put in a string of defensive shifts at the back. This term he has made 28 appearances in the English top flight, scoring 2 goals, creating 3 assists, making 1.8 tackles per game, and completing 1 interception on average so far (via WhoScored).
Unsurprisingly, many SUFC supporters gushed over the right-back’s interview on social media,
