Alex Mowatt suggests effect backroom changes will have on Leeds squad

Leeds United youngster Alex Mowatt is excited about pre-season and the start of the next campaign.

Leeds United youngster Alex Mowatt has explained on the club’s website why every player in the squad at Elland Road will need to make an impression over the next couple of weeks.

The Leeds midfielder is fully focused on the start of the new season and has given his thoughts on the backroom changes at the club, which has seen a whole host of staff come in to work under new head coach Uwe Rosler.

“There’s a lot of new backroom staff as well so we’ll have to make a good impression,” he told leedsunited.com.

“It will be good to get working with them. I haven’t had chance to meet them yet (new signings).”

Business as usual

It’s important that Mowatt, and other youngsters like him, don’t try and do too much differently to what they were doing under Neil Redfearn last season.

Mowatt added goals and assists from midfield and ticked every box that Leeds would have been hoping for from a player in his position.

While looking to make an impression and train with a spring in his step, he’s also got to withdraw a little and not overdo it, backing himself and his technique to keep him in the team at the start of the season.

It’s going to be important for him to help players like Charlie Horton and Lee Erwin settle into the club because he’s got the empathy to be sympathetic with what they’re going through having just joined a massive football club.
