The Blades, who are on course for a European place if they can continue the form they showed prior to the global shut-down, are among the clubs keen to get back up and running quickly.

Obviously, it goes without saying that the club won’t be breaking any rules or pressuring players into training and playing.

However, after interviewing George Baldock this week, experienced football writer, Henry Winter, confirmed via his Twitter account that United are indeed back in training.


Winter’s updated included what United had put in place for training to resume. Strict measures, such as cordoned off areas and individual work, were all included.

What does Sheffield United’s return to training look like?

As mentioned, the Blades seem to have taken a number of precautionary measures to ensure player safety.

Players have got their own individual car parking spaces. Players are also only taking part in warm-ups in groups of four, all the while maintaining social distancing.

Furthermore, United’s stars are then moving onto individual ball work, running drills, and gym work, before heading straight for their cars in their kit.

As usual, it seems United have taken their time with preparations and planning. Chris Wilder and his team are well-known for going into detail, so it’s little surprise, really.

Hopefully, as the weeks go by, things can pick up even further and full training can resume. The Blades, then, will be raring to go it seems by the time the Premier League gets the go-ahead.
