Leeds United star: “We need to take a look at ourselves” – is he right?


Midfielder Adam Forshaw had some frank words for the Leeds United squad following Wednesday night’s 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds’ Adam Pope after the game, Forshaw said the goals the side conceded were “Fundamentals, that they need to knuckle down and work on in training.”

With the trip to Reading only two days away Forshaw said the players “Can’t feel sorry for themselves” and that they have to “realise they are playing for Leeds and need to really step up”, adding that the squad need to prove they are up for playing for this great club.

Asking if he had made the right decision moving to Leeds, Forshaw said he absolutely has, citing the size of the club, the fans and the structure of the place, he added he is playing for “one of the best clubs in the country” and he is working hard to repay the faith shown by the supporters. Forshaw also used the interview to call on the rest of the players to play for pride and show what it’s about to play for Leeds.

On a positive note, Forshaw added that Head Coach Paul Heckingbottom has been “top class” and that he wants to improve them as players, despite results going against them.
