Farke confident his Championship experience can take Leeds to the Premier League

Leeds United new boss Daniel Farke says his experience in the Championship would be key for the club this season.

The German, who was confirmed on a four-year deal at Elland Road earlier this week, is confident ahead of this season. The Whites will play in the Championship after being relegated from the Premier League. The 46-year old led former club Norwich City to two title wins in the Championship during his reign.

Farke now says being back in English football, is a terrain he is comfortable with:

“Well in general, each and every season, each and every game helps you in order to be prepared for a huge task,” he said. “I know the Championship inside out.

“I’ve spent nearly five years here in English football, the last year on Bundesliga level, but I know, more or less, the Championship still really. I know exactly what is necessary in order to be successful.

“I’ve worked on Bundesliga level and I can judge the Premier League is the best league in the world, but the Championship is by far the toughest league. All these competitors, nearly each and every team wants to be there and fight for the promotion ranks, for the play-off ranks.

“So many games. You have to deliver every three days, two cup competitions in addition, so it’s a marathon and especially after relegation.
