Sheffield United skipper John Egan has opened up on being the leader in the dressing room.
The experienced star has spoken about taking over the role from club legend Billy Sharp.
The 31-year-old has been at the club for the past five seasons and has become a part of the furniture.
“There are bits that come with it but Billy Sharp was an unbelievable club captain so I learned a lot from him,” he said, per The Star.
“Having the armband a lot last season gets you used to it. It’s about me doing what I do and the added responsibilities off the field come with it.
“It’s something I relish. I’ve been here a long time and I’m very familiar with the club; what it means to play for Sheffield United and what it takes to get the fans off their seats. It’s just about trying to drill that into people coming into the building and set standards in training every day.
“I think [the standards] come from the lads who’ve been here a long time now and the way the training is. When I first came I learned it straight away, just from seeing the tempo of the training. It has to be high intensity here. When it’s not, that’s the time to speak and get it back. Down the years when we’ve been at our best training has been intense every day.”
