Exclusive: Ian Holloway plays down Sheffield Utd fears of burnout



Sheffield United take on Brentford as part of what has been a hectic run of games for them in recent weeks.

They faced Sheffield Wednesday at the start of the run, before taking on Rotherham at the weekend and now they face the Bees this evening.

The Blades then take on Leeds this coming weekend in what could be a huge game in the race for promotion.

Are they at risk of getting worn out by the schedule, then? Or are they going to take it in their stride on their way to promotion?

We spoke to Ian Holloway exclusively and he revealed he thinks it’ll be the latter:

“I don’t think anything is going to wear them out.

“They fell away last season but they have improved again and I think their manager is probably one of my favourites on the planet.

“If you gave him a group of players like at Chelsea he would make them play so brilliantly it would be unreal. I’m not saying he’s going to get that job but if you had the best players in the world playing the way he does, with the way they set you back, it would almost be like Man City.

“I think he has done a fantastic job wherever he has been and Sheffield United are so lucky to have him.

“I think they have made some great strides forward and so maybe this could be their season.

“It’s all or nothing the way they play and I love it.”
