Leeds United's Billy Sharp: Yes I'm frustrated, and Milanic knows it

Leeds signing Billy Sharp admits he is frustrated at a recent spell on the bench.

Leeds United summer signing Billy Sharp admits he is disappointed with a lack of first team football of late.

The striker has not started a game under new manager Darko Milanic, and just has one goal to his name so far, coming back in August against Middlesbrough in a 1-0 victory.

Speaking to Leeds United TV, Sharp described himself as frustrated.

"Yeah obviously every player wants to play football, I haven't played as much as I'd have liked to have done.

"I just want to get my head down and work hard to get back in the team and take my chance.

"I am frustrated, the manager knows that. I've just got to do what I do

"It's always hard when there's a lot of players settling in, a language battier but I'm sure with time the blend will get better."

Sharp added the international break came at a good time for him to 'clear his head' and is looking forward to getting going again.

His comments echo those of Steve Morison a week ago, who after being named on the bench against Sheffield Wednesday, was adamant he wanted first team football.

With Stephen Warnock also known to be unhappy on the sidelines, a win over Rotherham at the weekend will be essential to the new manager keeping a tightly-knit dressing room with the players behind him.
