Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has said that he will be making extensive changes to the team in the summer in order to make the club more competitive when it comes to their aim of achieving promotion to the Premier league next season. Leeds United failed to make it into the play-offs this season after a disappointing end to the season. Neil Warnock was appointed in the place of Simon Grayson, as the board at Leeds United lost patience in the latter efforts to take Leeds United to the top flight of English football. Even though Warnock arrived at a perfect time, he was not able to get Leeds to the play-offs.
Just as the Championship season has concluded, Warnock has said that he will be having a massive job in the summer when it comes to rebuilding the team. Warnock has said that the team demands three things – pace, power, and energy. The former QPR manager also said that the current squad lacks in the following things, which has called for extensive changes in the summer. Leeds were defeated in the final Championship game of the season against Leicester City. The 2-1 defeat meant that the club had suffered 11 home defeats throughout the season.
“I know the players I want and I’ve already got one in line who I’m pleased with. I’ve got to find the sort of players who will revel here – who’ll enjoy games at Elland Road like I do on the bench. I need to be able to rely on people and that’s not been the case. It’s almost like the fans have put their eggs in one basket with me. It’s like they trust me and that’s a fabulous feeling to have,” Warnock said after the Leicester City match. Leeds finished the season in the 14th position.
