Ex-midfielder: It's important there is common ground between these groups at Leeds

Former Leeds United midfielder David Prutton feels it's important the players and the manager both have a sense of security at Elland Road.

Former Leeds United midfielder David Prutton suggested in an interview for Radio Yorkshire where he feels it’s important there is common ground between all parties at his old club.

Prutton has suggested that security is priceless for the current crop of Leeds United players and new head coach Uwe Rosler, as everyone looks to move forward at Elland Road and look ahead to a promotion challenge next season.

“I think it’s important from a club point of view but also I’m sure the lads will want to be in a secure position to express themselves and the manager will want them to be in a secure position because then all they have to do is concentrate on football,” he said.

It’s a fair point with regards to the players because it’s difficult for any player to get his head down and concentrate on producing his best football, if there is doubt over the position of who is leading the team.

The dust has now settled on Rosler’s appointment and the end of the Neil Redfearn era and the players have a clear picture in relation to the German for when they return to pre-season.

It’s also a fair point with regards to Rosler, because it’s difficult for him to go about his business and execute his plans in relation to Leeds, if he senses doubt over his job.

Results slipped towards the back end of last season under Redfearn, with the coach likely worried about the way he was being undermined at Leeds from the very top level.

It is imperative that Massimo Cellino now settles things down and gives all of the new appointments at the club the chance to work and improve the club in all areas, without his finger tensing on the trigger.
