Leeds United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira has revealed on the club’s official website the positive attitude of his teammates.

Vieira, who is 18 years of age, has been training with the Leeds first team in pre-season.

The youngster has featured in friendly matches and will be aiming to earn a place in the squad for the upcoming 2016-17 campaign.

The teenager has been impressed with the attitude of the Leeds first-team players.

Vieira has revealed that even when mistakes are made, the players remain positive and do not blame anyone.

“It’s a young squad but they’re all behind you and they don’t complain when you make a mistake,” Vieira told Leeds’s official website.

“I gave the ball away on Saturday and they ended up scoring, but everyone said ‘Head up Ronnie, keep going’. That’s good for the team.”

Leeds are one of the biggest clubs of England and will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship this season.

The West Yorkshire outfit have not featured in the Premier League since 2004 and have become also-rans in the Championship in recent years.

However, the appointment of Garry Monk as the head coach and the signings of some good players in the summer transfer window so far suggest that this season could be different for Leeds.

Leeds will kick off their 2016-17 Championship campaign with an away game against Queens Park Rangers next weekend.
