Former Leeds United man Ross McCormack believes midfielder Glenn Kamara deserves more appreciation after his performance against Huddersfield.
Kamara stepped up to the task after being benched against Stoke midweek. The midfielder completed 104 out of his 108 passes on Saturday – only two Leeds players completed more. He was his normal cool calm and collected self, distrusting the ball effectively in the middle of the park. Every time Leeds needed to keep possession of the ball he was involved.
McCormack loved how Kamara played against Huddersfield and said his quality showed on the day:
“Pretty much nine times out of 10, that’s what you’ll get from Glen. He doesn’t give the ball away, he’ll go and win it back and he keeps the play ticking over. He’s got good quality,” McCormack said on BBC Radio Leeds.
“That performance today didn’t surprise me. I’ve seen him do that nearly every game for the past I don’t know how many years,”
Daniel Farke is a big fan of Kamara but has said the midfielder hasn’t really developed rhythm with the team. On the Finland international’s full debut, Farke had this to say about his passing quality:
“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.”
