Josh Warrington has rallying cry for Leeds United players

Elland Road

The boxer has been speaking about his beloved Leeds United.

Boxer Josh Warrington has recorded a message for his beloved Leeds United in a video that was later posted online by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Leeds are currently 16th in the Championship having won only two matches so far this season, and while manager Uwe Rosler has only overseen four defeats (in all competitions) in that time things are not currently looking good for the Whites.

Back-to-back losses against Middlesbrough and Birmingham City mean Leeds head into the international break with plenty of work to do starting later this month, but Warrington for one believes there is still plenty of time for Rosler to turn things round at Elland Road.

“At times we’ve looked a strong side, we have passed the ball well, but then it seems to go to pot,” Warrington told the YEP. “The squad is good enough to be getting results but there is something missing at the moment.

“We’ve got some quality players, they are going through a bad patch but hopefully they can turn it round, it’s still early in the season.

“You’ve just got to keep your focus, if you start thinking about what the crowd’s reaction is going to be then that’s when it is affecting you.”

Leeds’ next match is a big one, at home to current Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion, and Rosler will know how important it is not to go a club-record 11 home matches without a victory.

As Warrington said, Leeds certainly have the talent to succeed and one win could be the catalyst for much better things to come.
