Leeds United boss won’t sit back against Leicester City

Leeds United coach Daniel Farke rejected the notion that the team will go and sit back against Leicester City in their upcoming game on Friday.

The foxes are top of the Championship table, they lead Leeds United by 14 points. Leicester come into the game with five consecutive victories in their last five games, the Whites on the other hand, have only lost one of their last five games – winning four of them.

Ahead of the game, Daniel Farke says his team won’t sit back and defend on Friday:

“Our approach will never be that we park the bus and put the ball over the stand and counter over 90 yards. We want to attack the games and want to be the protagonist. We’re Leeds United and we want to be like this wherever we go and wherever we play. You have to be good in all periods of the game. We dominated the second-half against Huddersfield and we want to use each and every tool to create chances. Not just with counter attacks, we were quite strong and won the ball in the opponents half. It’s something we want to use but important to be rock solid with a structure off the ball.”

The last time Leeds United beat Leicester was in the Premier League in 2021. The Foxes have won four of the last seven meetings including their last league clash at the King Power stadium in 2022.
