Wilder said: “Your last session was apparently on September 1 and we played Chelsea the day before and came away with a point, in what was a superb second half display from the lads, so I hope the news of that gave you a bit of a boost.

“Hopefully everything will begin to settle down for you and your wife now. On behalf of everyone at Sheffield United, may I wish you a speedy recovery and wish you and your family the very best for the future.

“Keep supporting the Blades from afar and take the very best of care.”
