‘Light in all areas’ – former Leeds man predicts Whites will struggle

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson has stated that Leeds failed to add enough players in the summer transfer window.

Daniel James came from Manchester United on deadline day as the third and final summer addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s senior squad, adding to the capture of Junior Firpo and Kristoffer Klaesson earlier in the window.

However, Robinson wanted Leeds to sign another central midfielder, back up for Patrick Bamford and an experienced goalkeeper to help Illan Meslier and Klaesson out.

Speaking to MOT Leeds News, the veteran said: “I felt the opportunity to sign Daniel James was too good to turn down for Bielsa but a central midfielder, a back-up striker and potentially an experienced goalkeeper are the three positions I wanted to see them strengthen.

“Left-back was vitally important so that’s why they did that one so early and I think Junior will develop into a top player. He’s a very good signing.

“Dan James is also a very good one but there were other areas of that squad that needed bolstering.

“They’ve got more than enough to achieve what they did last year but they want to compete on all fronts and they’re light in all areas.”

Leeds currently sit in the bottom half of the Premier League with just two draws from their opening three games.
