Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler stressed the calmness that Luke Murphy provides when he features for the team.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler told the Yorkshire Evening Post about the main way he feels midfielder Luke Murphy helps the side when he features.

Murphy is battling to try and win a consistent place in Rosler’s first team at Leeds, with the German complimentary over the impact that he’s already had this season.

Rosler has suggested that the main role Murphy plays in the side is one based around him keeping everyone else around him calm and focused on achieving the right result.

“He’s a player who has calmed us down - he took the sting out of the game instead of rushing,” Rosler told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“He found a calm solution – He was good for us in every way, with and without the ball.”

A big challenge for the player

Any midfielder at Leeds like Murphy faces a massive challenge because central midfield is arguably the most competitive area of the squad.

Some players offer more going forward while others like Murphy and Lewis Cook are superb in terms of taking the sting out of a high intensity match.

Murphy has to decide what sort of player he wants to be for the club this season and then work on becoming the best at providing those qualities around the football club.

Rosler is clear in what he feels the player offers to the team and he should look forward to plenty more chances this season.
