Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has told Radio Yorkshire why he won’t be ripping into his young team any time soon.
Rosler was forced to watch Leeds concede a late equaliser in their opening Championship game of the season, having gone ahead early after a decent performance on the opening day of the season.
It was a disappointing slip in discipline for the young Leeds side but the early signs are promising and Rosler has urged them to adhere to the high standards they have set for themselves.
“We have three or four very young players who are learning the game – I as a coach can’t be disappointed when they’re making mistakes because the only way they learn is by making mistakes. This group of players have a high standard on themselves,” he told Radio Yorkshire.
Consistency is important
Any squad with a large group of young players is prone to making mistakes. The job for Rosler is trying to ensure that Leeds’ consistency keeps those errors minimal and uncommon.
Wins breed confidence and give the side momentum as they go looking to establish a good position on the Championship table.
Rosler also has a big responsibility to ensure that no heads drop around the side after the manner of their draw against Burnley, as a better approach is stressing the positives and taking the point against a well established and very strong side.
The great thing about the youngsters in the Leeds United team is that they have the potential to stay together, develop and grow over a number of years and part of that process means learning from mistakes to ensure that they don’t repeat themselves.
