‘He’s brilliant’ - Leeds player Charlie Taylor hails Stephen Warnock

Leeds United

Charlie Taylor has been talking about the challenge of breaking into Leeds United's first-team on a regular basis.

Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor has been talking to the club’s official website about his thoughts on Stephen Warnock and his hopes of breaking into the first-team.

The 21-year-old has made just two appearances for Leeds this season – playing the full match against Accrington Stanley in the League Cup and featuring for 36 minutes in the Championship against Bolton Wanderers.

Much of that has been down to the presence of Warnock, who Taylor praised in the interview.

“He’s been brilliant really, I can’t argue,” Taylor said. “He’s probably been one of the best players if not the best player for us this season.

“It’s been a bit frustrating at times but I’m up against a really good player and a really experienced player…”

Taylor has made six first-team appearances in total for Leeds but really came into his own last season while on loan at Fleetwood Town, where he made 42 appearances and helped the club earn promotion to League One.

He knows he has to be patient for his chance now he is back at Elland Road but in Neil Redfearn he has a manager who is not afraid to call on his young players when they are deemed ready.
