Sheffield United fans have been reacting on Twitter to the latest news and rumours surrounding their football club.
This comes after Sheffield United-focused account The Bladesman shared a claim from The Star’s James Shield, which stated that Jokanovic has told the board at Bramall Lane that he believes their squad is better than the squad’s he managed at both Watford and Fulham, both of whom he got promoted to the Premier League.
Fans of the Blades were quick to respond to the suggestion…
“I mean he’s not wrong as long as we don’t sell players”
“That’s it, we’re up then”
“Just announce promotion”
“Going up, Going up, Going up”
“Keep Sander & Rambo and he’s correct”
“You’ve landed on your feet here then Slav!! Now get to work and bring in some more quality!!”
Judging by the responses, many Sheffield United fans are buzzing with the news, hoping that this means the club will achieve promotion next season with ease.
Jokanovic was appointed as Blades manager in May, becoming the club’s first-ever overseas manager, after what was a tough season in the Premier League, which saw them relegated back to the Championship, having finished rock-bottom.
The Serbian’s CV is a good one as far as the Championship is concerned, with the Serbian achieving promotion to the Premier League with both Watford and Fulham and the 52-year-old is hoping to make it three clubs out of three, if he can get the Blades promoted straight back to the Premier League next season.
