Daniel Farke on the international break and player selection

Leeds boss Daniel Farke said in his press conference in Thursday that he prefers not to compare his players, but rather plays them according to their strengths and skills.

The German has got Leeds to a flying start to their Championship campaign after a shaky beginning. Heading into the international break, The Whites won three of their four games and sit in fifth place, just one point behind third placed Preston.

The 46-year old said that the term worked on finishing drills with the group that was available during the break:

“It’s always the same. The first week and the start of the second, you concentrate on individual work and offensive players we worked on finishing. It was possible to work on special areas but it’s not team training because you don’t have the numbers. It’s always tricky”

When asked about the selection dilemma Daniel James and Jamison Anthony provide to the team, Farke gave an interesting reply:

“In general I don’t compare two players. They are good options and all players are different. You can’t compare Rutter or Bamford, they’re different. Each player has strengths and skills and others have different skills. Sometimes we have players who play on the right wing or in the pocket and the same on the left, we want to play players to their strengths. If you have the choice, you can share the load. Sometimes I have to disappoint players.”
