Robbie Keane says Leeds can take a lot of positives from City game

Leeds coach Robbie Keane believes the game against Man City had a lot of positives.

The former Leeds player arrived as part of Sam Allardyce’s backroom staff after Javi Gracia was sacked. Big Sam and Robbie Keane were handed the reigns with four games to save the season. Their first result was a loss against Man City, but the 42-year old says the game was a learning curve:

“Pleased with the spirit,” Keane told LUTV. “We have watched games and when they concede goals they concede again not long afterwards, I think that was the pleasing factor.

“At this stage you’re just trying to win as many games as possible. This probably wasn’t going to be the game, the games that will decide that will be the next three.

“Towards the end of the game you could see the positives, the fans were outstanding for the whole game, the way they were celebrating with the players, they’ve seen the effort they were putting in and now we need to continue that this week.

“It’s been a crazy few days. In the build-up just getting to know the personalities but it’s been a really good, positive few days. Of course we wish the outcome today was a bit more but were focused now for next week and that will start on Monday morning.”
