Weir set to entertain

18 June 2013

David Weir is confident he can incorporate an entertaining style of play into a winning and successful team next season.

Speaking following his unveiling as new Blades boss last week, the talismanic Scotsman remarked:

"I would like to play exciting football because in the modern game you have to have a bit of style in your performance, but most of all we need to be consistently winning matches.

"Sheffield United have always been associated with hard work, organisation and good values - the supporters will expect that I will marry that up with my own ideas.

"I know a lot about the make-up of this club and its history; I know in this era how important it is to get young players into the first-team.

"My instinct told me this was the right club at the right time and I always back my instinct. I have always tried to do the right thing for the right reasons and that is what I believe is the best approach."

Weir already has a feel for the club having joined on trial as a player last year, he aims to put that experience to good use to earn a smooth transition into his new role.

He concluded: "I was at the club in January last year and I hope those few weeks around the place will help me now.

"I learnt how the club worked on a day-to-day basis so I have something to work with as I try and maximise our assets.

"I always want to engage in the club I am working for and that again has always been my way. I have got a good feeling about the Blades already.

"In the short term, the major aim has to be to win promotion, it doesn't matter how you dress it up.

"It needs to be as soon as possible within reason, but in the longer term I want to build something special and give the supporters something they can be proud of.

"I am determined to build solid foundations to get this club back to where it ultimately belongs because if we achieve that we need to stay there this time."
