Wootton comments on Leeds team spirit, praises Rosler for sensible approach

Leeds United defender Scott Wootton is on confident mood ahead of the new season.

Leeds United defender Scott Wootton has told the club’s official website that he feels the way the club’s new signings have slotted in at the club, will help the side maintain a healthy team spirit.

Wootton has suggested that a unity started to develop under old manager Neil Redfearn last season, which he feels has been given the chance to continue and gather pace ahead of an important Championship campaign.

He’s also praised the clear vision that Uwe Rosler has put across since coming in as head coach, which he feels has allowed everyone to become fully aware of their roles and responsibilities.

“There’s a good team spirit amongst the lads and everyone gets on well with each other,” he told leedsunited.com.

“We had a tight bond towards the end of last season and that’s just continued into pre-season.”

“There are no gray areas – everything is black or white. The more time the squad works with him, we’ll know exactly what he wants.”

Team spirit is an important quality for Leeds

Leeds United do have a very young team despite the signings that Rosler has made and a sense of unity and togetherness will help the side against some teams who are in stronger positions.

If the new players continue to gel effectively with the youngsters, there is going to be a real togetherness in the way Leeds play.

That should have the effect of the club’s players doing that little bit extra for each other in big games, inspiring each other to set examples and ensure that Leeds secure the right results.

Credit to Rosler

Credit has to go to the current boss for making the transition into his current regime as smooth as possible.

If he keeps the number of messages going into his players low, it gives the players less to be confused about in terms of the way he wants them to change their style.

It’s a case of small tweaks rather than mass changes and that should create continuity and consistency in performances.
