Leeds United fans have been left impressed from their first viewing of Paul Heckingbottom’s training sessions.

Heckingbottom was appointed as Leeds coach earlier this week, and he immediately set about working with his side on the training ground.

The new Whites boss looked an authoritative figure at Thorp Arch, as he put his new side through some drills.

And Leeds fans feel that Heckingbottom’s vocal approach is already an improvement on Thomas Christiansen.

Christiansen’s leadership was, perhaps, not as commanding as Heckingbottom’s.

The Dane was fairly softly spoken, whereas Heckingbottom has a reputation as a tough-talking and straight-forward manager.

Heckingbottom will take charge of Leeds for the first time this weekend, when the Whites take on Sheffield United on Saturday.

Leeds have struggled for victories of late, and Heckingbottom will need to make a flying start if the Whites are to compete for a play off spot.
