Milanic gives his opinion on Adryan's debut display

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds head coach Darko Milanic has praised Adryan after his debut performance.

Leeds United manager Darko Milanic believes that Adryan looked very dangerous when he made his debut against Rotherham United on Friday night.

Adryan came off the bench for the last half-hour of the match and he showed all his quality, despite a brief cameo.

The Brazilian was not able to stop Leeds slipping to a 2-1 defeat to their Yorkshire rivals, but he did show a lot of promise on the pitch and Milanic also felt the 20-year-old was a threat.

"Adryan was very dangerous," he said to the club's official site. "He made good movement inbetween the lines. He played very well for 30 minutes and did a good job.” 

Adryan had three shots during his substitute appearance, but it was his build-up play which really caught the eye.

With twists and turns aplenty, the playmaker looked Leeds' brightest player in the second-half and he surely will be nearing a start. 

Leeds have struggled for goals under Milanic so far and the Slovenian is under pressure to start collecting points quickly, after only picking up two out of the 12 available to him in his first four games in charge.

It is a poor run of form, which means Leeds are locked in the bottom-half of the table and this slump needs to be stopped quickly.

The Whites have a chance to get back to winning ways tomorrow evening when they take on high-flying Norwich City at Carrow Road.
