Leeds United boss Daniel Farke has praised Glen Kamara after the midfielder got his first start against Watford.
The Whites ran out convincing 3-0 winners against Watford on Saturday, with the Finland international making his first full start. Kamara had to wait for his chance to enter the lineup after an impressive start to the season from both Ethan Ampadu and Archie Gray.
When Farke was asked about the 27-year old’s performance, the German coach was full of praise:
“I think it was important because he had little pre-season because there was so many rumours and talks with Rangers that he didn’t get much game time, was tough for him.
“Obviously when you come into a new environment and you’ve not played competitive games for such a long period, you need a few weeks in order to be then really prepared. I think he had also a bit of game time for Finland, I think this helped him, you could see him growing over the last two weeks or so in training.
“The last days I got the feeling okay, he looks like now that he’s really prepared and ready because I just wanted to unleash him and he’s really fully fit and fully ready to go and this is what he showed today.
“I think he was excellent in his passing, his positioning against the ball. Obviously not a perfect performance even there were some areas we can improve but if you keep in mind that this was the first competitive game for him for clubs since really long while, you have to say you have to give him lots of praise and I’m pleased that he repaid as much as possible.”
Leeds are back in action next weekend as they take on Southampton at The Saint Mary’s Stadium.
