McGoldrick Excited To Be Part Of Ambitious Sheffeld United Team

Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick says he is delighted how his move to the Blades has turned out.

The Republic of Ireland international left Ipswich to join Chris Wilder’s side on the free transfer in the summer, and he feels a move outside of his comfort zone to an ambitious club has helped motivate him:

“I maybe got a bit too comfortable at Ipswich, although I loved my time there. But we were mid-table every week and there was no big expectations to go out there and win every game like there is at Sheffield United at the moment.”

“I never wanted to stop playing football. I wanted to be back doing it every day and scoring goals. I want to get promoted with Sheffield United and keep going.”

McGoldrick has been in a rich vein of form for United since his arrival in late July. The 31-year-old has hit the back of net 12 times in 36 Championship appearances.

Last season for Ipswich, he managed just eight goals in all competitions, having been sidelined with a groin strain for the final three months of the campaign.

McGoldrick will be hoping to keep fit during the run-in in order to help the Blades secure an automatic promotion spot. The win against Yorkshire rivals Leeds last Saturday should give them all the belief they need that they can finish in the top two.
