The Blades will be back in the Championship this season, and their new boss has the daunting task of ensuring they bounce back up to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Meanwhile, England are gearing up for their second Euro 2020 group match on Friday, when they take on bitter rivals Scotland in a mouth-watering clash at Wembley Stadium.
United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale was called up as a replacement for Dean Henderson earlier in the week, and has been discussing the big game against Steve Clarke's side.
He revealed: “I’ll be belting it (the national anthem) out, but I might cry or I might smile, I couldn’t tell you.
“It’s England v Scotland at a major tournament at Wembley and I’m going to be involved, with the three lions on my chest. It doesn’t get much better than that, unless you start. This is the next best thing.
“Surreal is the word, I was speechless, but also it’s tinged a little bit because I’m devastated for Deano. I’ve had mixed emotions really. I’ve been over the moon on my side but I saw Dean earlier on and he’s been fantastic, saying it’s my time now and I an go and help the team. I can’t speak highly enough of him.”
