Ex-Blade Patrick Suffo talks to SUFC Memories...

Ahead of this week's clash with WBA we speak to a man who played his part in one of the more extraordinary games of the Blades recent history - Patrick Suffo.

In 2000 United signed Suffo from French outfit Nantes - he went on to make over 35 appearances during his stay, scoring 5 goals in the process.

We talk to Patrick now about his thoughts on the club prior to his move along with his experiences as a player and then since he moved on.


How much did you know about Sheffield United before signing for the club?

Before I came to the club , I knew there were two football clubs within the city and that the rivalry was very intense!

What is your greatest memory as a Blade?

It has to be when I made my first appearance as a Sheffield United player against Fulham. None of the fans knew who I was and none had seen me play before but every one of them got behind me that day and they did for the rest of my time at the club!

The low point of your time with Sheffield United?

I don't really have any particular low points that stand out at all during my time playing for the Blades but my only disappointment is the way I left the club.

The best player you played with during your time at Bramall Lane?

I wouldn't really want to single one individual player out from those I played with. One who always impressed me both in training and in games was Paul Devlin.

You were sent off in the Battle of Bramall Lane - what are your memories of that day?

Memories are still very fresh from that day and it is one that I will certainly not forget. The main thing I take from that game is to never leave your teammates to fight for themselves on the pitch and that's what I did - I did my best to stand up for my teammates and the club!

Have you followed the clubs progress since you left?

Of course - I follow the club every week. The fixtures and the results - I'm a Blade forever now!

Finally, what are you up too now - are you still involved in the game?

I now work as a consultant away from football but from time to time I do some work in football.


Thanks to Patrick for speaking to SUFC Memories this week! Keep your eyes peeled for our next interview alongside daily content ahead of upcoming fixtures.
