Image for Sheffield United: Fans buzz over Paul Heckingbottom celebration

A number of Sheffield United fans have reacted positively online after seeing footage of their coaching staff celebrating a goal. 

Earlier in the month, the Blades decided to part ways with former boss Slavisa Jokanovic less than six months into a three-year contract. In his place, Paul Heckingbottom was handed a long-term deal at Bramall Lane.

Things got off to a great start for the new man in charge over the weekend, with United claiming a 2-0 home win over Bristol City thanks to goals from Rhian Brewster and Billy Sharp.

Following the win, the club’s official Twitter page shared footage of a passionate Heckingbottom celebrating the second goal of the game – in the heavy snow – with coaching staff Stuart McCall and Jack Lester.

After seeing the clip emerge online, many Blades fans were happily enjoying the content.

Here’s what these Sheffield United fans said…

“That’s what our club needs. someone who is passionate, Slav has a great CV but wasn’t right for our club.”

“Absolutely love to see it.”
“This is what I want to see from the management team. This is what I haven’t seen since March. This is what makes a difference to both the players and fans. This is Sheffield United.”
“I love this.”
