Sol Bamba provides update on the mood in Leeds United's dressing room

Leeds United defender Sol Bamba is confident positive results aren't too far away for the club.

Leeds United defender Sol Bamba has described on the club’s official website, the current state of the mood in the club’s dressing room.

The centre back is feeling good ahead of the new season and has suggested that all of the players have brought into the ideology that head coach Uwe Rosler is looking to create.

It bodes well for Leeds with the Championship season now starting in under a week, with a settled and happy squad likely to give the club a better chance of getting off to a good start.

“The dressing room is great but we know we’re professionals and everybody wants to play,” Bamba told leedsunited.com.

“That starts from the first day and it’s up to everyone to step up and show the manager what they can do.”

“The results will start to come and it’s always good to win games – it’s good for the confidence.”

Reasons to be optimistic

There are plenty of reasons for Leeds’ players and fans to be confident ahead of that important game against Burnley.

There doesn’t seem to be any notion of the players struggling to adapt under the guidance of Uwe Rosler, which was always going to be a challenge considering the settled way that former boss Neil Redfearn had got the side playing.

Rosler also deserves credit for making forward thinking and positive additions to the Leeds squad in key areas.

Bamba supports the defence and there are fresh attacking options up front and arguably a signing, which improves the wide options of the team still necessary.

If Leeds can start the season well with all new faces playing well, there’s no reason the club can’t get into a position inside the top six over the first few weeks and stay there.
