Sheffield Utd striker Robinson hails Coleman leadership

Sheffield United striker Callum Robinson has welcomed the leadership of Everton's Seamus Coleman with the Republic of Ireland.

The Blues skipper, who celebrated his 31st birthday on Friday, has helped the striker settle into the squad.

Robinson admitted: “He's been unbelievable and probably more so off it (the pitch) for me.

“He has a good blend of being serious when he needs to be serious and working hard.

“But still having that time to have a joke and laugh. So it's not all serious, because if you're serious 24/7, lads would be 'Come on'. “But since Thursday and Friday, you can feel it in the skipper that it's game mode."
