The attacking duo arrived at Elland Road in January to spur Leeds United on towards promotion.
If there’s one attribute that characterises Leeds United above all else this season, its character. Even in Sunday’s dramatic late defeat to Huddersfield Town, the way the team rallied around manager Garry Monk following his bizarre touchline altercation with Terriers’ bounding boss David Wagner epitomised the togetherness and the spirit within the group.
And, as reported by the club’s official website, Leeds’ new recruits will have little difficulty fitting into one of the most impressively assembled squads in many a year.
Forwards Alfonso Pedraza and Modou Barrow (below) arrived at Elland Road midway through the campaign from Villarreal and Swansea City respectively, purporting to add an extra attacking edge and depth.
And, according to Monk himself, both will fit in perfectly both on and off the pitch.
“We have a very good group here who have welcomed them with open arms," Monk told the club’s official website. "They have been great and settled, they are ready to work, along with helping and contributing to the group.
"They are coming into a very competitive group that are doing very well this season, but we know their attitude and profile is the same as the group we have which will benefit the team."
If Leeds are to maintain their play-off push over the next few months of the campaign, attitude, team-spirit and togetherness will prove as important as the quality on it.
Therefore, the fact that Pedraza and Barrow appear ready to grasp the nettle speaks volumes of their character, not to mention Leeds’ revamped recruitment as a whole.
