Jan Age Fjortoft and Sheffield Utd came here in 1990s
Former Sheffield United player Jan Age Fjortoft has been reflecting on a trip to Manx shores in unusual circumstances.
The Norwegian centre forward played for the club from 1997 to 1998.
In a new podcast on the club's social media accounts, he remembers how the manager brought the squad here after a play off semi-final, to the bemusement of players:
"He said 'Well boys, what we do now is we go to the Isle of Man." ⚽️— Sheffield United (@SheffieldUnited) August 11, 2020
