United midfielder, Mo Besic, has spoken of his desire to simply do well for the team and insisted nothing changes for the squad despite travelling to Liverpool tomorrow.
The Bosnian midfielder filled in admirably for John Lundstram as United lost out 2-0 to Manchester City. The Everton loanee has had to be patient, with only four appearances prior to that off the bench.
However, with Lundstram potentially due to miss out again as the Blades travel to Liverpool, Besic could be asked to step in again.
But rather than sulking about a lack of minutes, Besic insists he is more interested in the team performing well.
“I’m enjoying my time here, it’s really good,” Besic insisted (Yorkshire Post).
“Of course you want to play more, but the team is the most important thing. I will wait for my chance. When the people in the team are playing so well you have to understand, train well and wait for chances to come.”
It’s that sort of attitude that has endeared Besic to Blades fans in his short time at the club. He put in a fine performance at Norwich from the bench a few weeks ago and did well against City’s stellar midfield.
While Sheffield United will travel to Liverpool knowing it’s the toughest assignment of the season, there will be an air of optimism following their display at the Etihad.
But for a VAR overturned goal and a referee bumping into John Fleck, things may have been a lot different for the Blades.
And Besic insists the Blades will not change their playing style, even for Liverpool.
“We look forward to Liverpool. We play our own way and it never changes” Besic added.
“To me, it doesn’t matter if it’s Liverpool. I just enjoy it and hope we can come back with a result”.
Manchester City will be hoping United can do them a favour. A win for the Blades and another three points for City would at least close the gap a bit at the top.
Mo Besic and his teammates will be doing all they can to win at Liverpool. But it won’t be for anyone else but themselves.
