Leeds United boss Daniel Farke says he is focused on the end of the season after beating Championship league leaders Leicester City tonight.
The Whites became the second team in the league this season to beat the Foxes at home, putting an end to their nine game unbeaten run. Georginio Rutter was on hand to tap home a rebound after a corner. The Frenchman’s third goal this season came at a crucial point.
This win continues Leeds’ brilliant run – they’ve won five of their last six games, only Stoke City got the better of them. Daniel Farke said at the press conference that his focus is solely on the end of the season:
“Maybe. For us, the table is not important after 15 or 20 games. Matters after 46. Whatever the outcome would be today, everything is still possible for both sides. Big confidence boost for us. Great three points. Another clean sheet.”
When the German coach was asked if he was surprised at the team’s performance today he said he has full belief in his players:
“Not surprised. I believe in my players and believed we could dominate the game how we did in the opening 15 mins of each half. Can be decisive when yo don’t score during good spells. Kept going. Good in moments we had to stay structured. Could see the goal coming.
So many good situations. Liked a lot Leicester’s performance in possession, but a well deserved win in the need based on our chances.“
