Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has said that he is extremely happy with the pre-season and is very much looking forward to the start of the new season. Neil Warnock was given the task of getting Leeds United promoted to the Premier league, but he could not make any changes to the team in the final few months after his arrival.
However, the former QPR manager has made some significant changes to the team in the summer transfer window that has seen them gone undefeated in the pre-season so far. Speaking after the 1-0 win over Burton, the manager has said that he is keen to start the new season with this confidence.
The new Championship season will be starting in the next few days and Leeds United will undoubtedly be one of the favourites for the promotion spots. However, this season is going to be extremely tough for promotion in the Championship due to the presence of many high-profile clubs like Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers. Further, the former Premier league clubs like Middlesbrough and Hull city are also likely to be in contention for promotion. Yet, Neil Warnock has seen enough to suggest that Leeds United will be a major contender in the new season.
“The new lads got a game and that was important. And the vibe is great – its almost as if we’ve got Rio Ferdinand signed! You wouldn’t have thought that they were new to the team. They settled in straight away. We’re still lacking a few goals, but we’ve improved every time we’ve played. I thought it was a good work-out, no holds barred and nobody holding back. It’s looking quite promising at the minute,” said the former QPR manager after the 1-0 win over Burton. Leeds United will be taking on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the opening match of the season, which is going to be extremely tough according to the manager Neil Warnock.
