George Baldock left furious with Rams player

George Baldock was not happy with a tackle which occurred in the pre-season fixture against Derby County, over the weekend.

Sheffield United faced the Rams at Pride Park Stadium on Saturday. And the Blades ran away as winners, securing a 3-1 win via two late goals. One of the scorers for United was Baldock, but he was left angry due to a poor tackle from Derby midfielder Max Bird. After the match, Baldock expressed his dissatisfaction to The Star:

“I wasn’t too happy with the tackle. Where my leg was planted, if it was a little bit more forceful it could have done some serious damage. It was halfway up the leg and I just saw red mist, to be honest.”

Perhaps the anger from this incident made Baldock put extra power on his ferocious left-footed effort which found the top corner, in the final few minutes of the game.

The Greek international is the only senior right-wingback that’s been available in pre-season, following Jayden Bogle’s knee issues. United have looked at bringing in Mason Holgate via a loan to add depth to the right side of defence, but his staggering weekly wage has put off any potential suitors.
