Sheffield United in line for 'big boost' after Jokanovic training ground reveal - Kenny
Sheffield United will come back stronger after the international break when Salvisa Jokanovic has had more time to work with his players.
So says Blades legend Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Serbian manager’s impact on the training ground.
“He challenges your brain and it’s those small details that make you become better,” United defender George Baldock told The Star on 7 October.
The Blades went four league matches unbeaten after the last international break, scoring 12 goals in the process.
And Kenny predicts that history will repeat itself when Jokanovic’s side return to action against Stoke City on 15 October.
“I’m hoping to see a big improvement after the break,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“Results improved after the last international break. That little upturn was really important, but they have dropped off again in recent weeks.
“A couple of weeks without a game will give the manager some more time to work with people on the training ground.
“He is still new at the club, still learning about his staff and players. This little break can do them the world of good in that area.
“They have been scoring recently, but it’s the defence they really need to work on.
“The thing with international breaks is that if you’re on a bad run, it’s a massive plus. But if you’re on a good run, it disrupts your momentum.
“So I think this has come at a good time for Sheffield United. Hopefully, it can be big boost.”
