Former Leeds United player Gary O’Hara told Radio Yorkshire that the club’s head coach Uwe Rosler has one simple aim to achieve at Elland Road.
Rosler has been handed the task of taking the team forward by president Massimo Cellino and will be under pressure to get the team off to a good start once the Championship action returns in August.
“Unfortunately there seems to be one or two more stories at Leeds United – You just don’t know what’s going to happen. I really hope they can get back into the Premiership sooner rather than later and hopefully Rosler will be the one who can get them there,” he said.
The Premier League is the Holy Grail for Leeds and any big Championship team because of the obvious benefits which are created for any team going up.
Leeds have a large and youthful looking squad and Rosler has changes to make over the course of the summer to give himself positive options in all positions.
Leeds don’t have a bottomless account of cash to spend so the German has to be clever while making the most of the talented youngsters in the current squad.
The Championship last season showed just how competitive the division is and Leeds need to be wary of the threats coming from all angles as they chase a place in the top six.
A play-off position is not an impossible aim for a club of Leeds’ size and with their impressive support base. However, there are going to be teams throwing a lot of cash chasing the automatic places which Leeds may struggle to match.
