Neil Warnock explains what he'd be thinking if he supported Leeds

Former Leeds United manager Neil Warnock suggested the future is looking bright for the club.

Former Leeds United manager Neil Warnock told talkSPORT what he’d be thinking if he was a fan of the club.

Warnock suggested that Leeds are moving in the right direction, although the side is now out of the League Cup after defeat at the hands of Doncaster Rovers, who prevailed on penalties.

Leeds need to regroup and refocus quickly because the next match is already bearing down on the side, with a game against Reading on Sunday.

“I think Leeds are in decent hands now. If I was a Leeds fan now I’d think yeah we’ve got a decent manager, a settled squad,” he told talkSPORT.

“I see they’re trying to get Sam Byram to sign a new contract, who went backwards but he’s coming back again now – If he can let Uwe just get on with his job then they’ll have that stability.”

Stability is everything

Stability really is the key for Leeds and Uwe Rosler and hopefully the German will be given the space and the time to develop the side as he sees fit.

One of the main problems since Massimo Cellino came to the club is that he’s made so many changes in terms of the manager, who controls the team.

It’s always going to be difficult for a team to move forward and develop if the directions coming frm above the players are changing so frequently.

As Warnock alludes to, Leeds are also doing well in terms of keeping their key young players which creates stability and continuity with the same group growing up, experiencing a variety of different situations together which is key.
