Gordan Strachan raves about Leeds United's class of '92, makes Leicester comparison

Leeds United East Stand

The Scotland boss feels the Leeds team of 1992 resembles the current Premier League leaders.

Gordon Strachan has compared the Leeds United side of 1992 to Leicester City's current table toppers, according to Sky Sports.

And the Scotland boss says he has never heard as much rubbish as when players claim their manager doesn't like them.

At that Leeds side, everyone got 'the maximum out of themselves,' just as Leicester are doing right now, Strachan thinks.

The Scot has raved about the standards at Leeds in the early '90s. Strachan is quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Sunday:

"The standards [at Leeds] were set not by the fitness coaches or nutritionists or anything else. It was the guys who led from the front that trained every day and said 'Right, we'll lead from the back and we'll take you. You want to join us. If you can't join us you're not good enough for us.'

"I love people who get the maximum out of themselves and don't use anything as an excuse. There are too many people who say 'the manager doesn't like me' or 'I never got the breaks there'.

"I've never heard so much rubbish. You determine where you go in life and there will be something out there you'll be good at."

Leicester deserve their success, just as this season's Leeds players deserve what they've got right now: Championship mediocrity.

The Foxes remain seven points clear of Tottenham at the top of the Premier League and, although nothing is settled yet, they are edging closer and closer towards Premier League success.

Leeds, meanwhile, travel to Birmingham City on Tuesday night looking to pick up a win after four games without one.

Leicester will host West Ham United at the King Power Stadium next Sunday afternoon.
