Leeds January signing Max Wober says the club has a fight on their hands to survive in the Premier League this season.
Wober arrived in January from Red Bull Salzburg, and his impact has been felt as Leeds’ have tightened up defensively. Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports Austria, the defender spoke on the difference between Leeds and Salzburg:
“Of course it’s a difference to Salzburg, where you know that you can take the three points in at least 90% of the games. Now every weekend is a full fighting game, anyone can win against anyone.”
The 25-year old also spoke on what the club need to do to ensure safety this season:
“You can tell that there is insane pressure and that the club’s existence is at stake. It’s definitely the toughest league I’ve played in so far.”
“Every game feels like a Champions League game in terms of intensity. You have to be alert every second, otherwise it will rattle at the back.”
Leeds are in 17th place in the league with 22 points so far. There are 13 games remaining for Javi Gracia to ensure survival for the club. The Whites face in form Brighton this weekend.
