Bianchi suggests key quality can see Leeds United defeat any team this season

Leeds United midfielder Tommaso Bianchi is confident the club have the togetherness to embrace any challenge this season.

Leeds United star Tommaso Bianchi told Radio Yorkshire what he sees as the key to his side being able to beat any team in the Championship this season.

Leeds face a very difficult opening game against the recently relegated Burnley and it will be a good early test to see where Uwe Rosler’s team are compared to the side that were gracing the Premier League last year.

Bianchi has stressed that he feels Leeds can give themselves a subtle advantage in the respect of their togetherness and team spirit, which can act as something levelling the playing field for any team.

“It will be a very hard match but last season against a big team, we played well. We will stay together and try to do our best and I think together, we can win against all teams and I really hope we win,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

Why team spirit should be easy for Leeds

Team spirit should be easy for Leeds to create because of the nature of the current first team.

Leeds have a side packed full of younger players who progressed out of the academy during a spell of adversity for the football club.

That instantly would have given them a bond and the fact Leeds have a young side is also significant because it means that, unless players are sold, the team should stay together for an extended period.

That sort of unity is something that money can’t buy and in the matches where Leeds go up against teams with bigger budgets and more glamorous or expensive players, it’s something they can readily fall back on.
