“This move ticked a lot of boxes for me,” Glover stated. “It’s a great opportunity. I’ll be working at an excellent club with a man I know well.

“We are on the same page about how the game should be played, but I won’t be frightened to give my opinion.

“I’m sure me and Grant will have a great relationship. He is the gaffer and will have the final word, but the main thing is that we create a successful League One side.

“It’s difficult to predict how successful we will be. There’s always a club who will thor a lot of money at a promotion bid and I expect Sheffield United to be really strong under Chris Wilder.

“What we have to remember is teams who win promotion and who reach the play-offs are the teams who show great consistency for 40 weeks in a row. That’s the real secret for success.”

Glover (46) helped Derby stars Jeff Hendrick and Will Hughes develop from under 21 football to first-team regulars.

“My experience with young players will be helpful. I understand what working with young players entails. They have to learn lifestyle skills as well as football skills.”
