Leeds boss Jesse Marsch hails new signing Max Wober for his impressive display against Brentford over the weekend.
The Austrian defender made his first start since joining the team and did not disappoint. Wober made 3 interceptions – the most by a Leeds player and also won 3 out of 4 of his duels in the game. After the game, Marsch was full of praise for the defender:
“Max very clear with his role and has fitted in seamlessly. Very strong performances and a big reason to get the clean sheet. Intelligence, communication and ability on the ball,” Marsch said when asked about Wober’s first League start.
“Probably best passing centre-back I have worked with. His intelligence has helped the whole group. Have not conceded with him on the pitch and that says a lot about his clarity and our expectations,” he added.
On the Wober-Koch pairing
Marsch also hinted that Wober and Koch could be the first choice defensive pairing moving forward. The duo looked competent in dealing with Ivan Toney on Sunday.
“Both of them have had a good tactical education in Austria and Germany. Very strong performances … to get the clean sheet.” Marsch said.
Leeds’ next game is in the FA Cup against Boreham Wood or Accrington Stanley this weekend.
