Ex Blade Catches The Eye of Barca Boss
Blades flop Luton Shelton will be on cloud nine this week after receiving glowing praise from Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola, who led Barca to the Champions League two years ago came up against Shelton in a friendly last Thursday, and despite not being able to win the game for Norwegian side Valerenga, did catch the eye of the former Spannish international.
'Luton Shelton was extremely fast," the coach told Aftenposten. "He is from Jamaica, so maybe he is the son of Usain Bolt!
Shelton had an unsuccessful spell at Bramall Lane, being signed by Neil Warnock with the club in the Premier League, and despite impressing on his debut at Old Trafford, rarely got chance to show Blades fans what he was fully capable of.
His most famous moment at the Lane, came in the 2-1 FA Cup victory over Manchester City, when he opened the scoring with the help from a blue balloon.
