It was a low-key start to life at the Blades for the Serb, with Covid-19 restrictions resulting in an open-air media gathering with strict timings for different journalists.

Previously of Watford and Fulham, Jokanovic is looking for his third promotion from the Championship after leading both of those clubs into the Premier League – but refused to be drawn on claims that United should be amongst the favourites for promotion when the new season gets underway next month, at home to Birmingham City.

“They are the favourites, we are the favourites, I don’t know what people mean by that in sport,” he said. “I find it difficult to understand, because we need to play 46 games. Those are what decides.”
