Ex-Leeds United assistant manager speaks about the club’s Championship winning chances

Pep Clotet certainly has a high opinion about his former club as the former assistant manager at Leeds United has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that the Whites have a quality to finish the upcoming season among the top teams in the Sky Bet Championship.

“They were a squad who finished seventh in the Championship, so there is an opportunity to improve” said Clotet.

“It looks like it’s good times for the club. They’ve managed to buy the stadium back and they’ve managed to refurbish it. They’ve managed to have funds available to invest in the squad in the way they thought they had to do. That means the club is in a good way and being taken care of.

“It’s not easy for me to analyse the transfers because I’m a little bit in the distance from Leeds but in my heart I do have all the hard work the players put in for this club last season and the quality they showed.

“They were a squad who finished seventh in the Championship so there is an opportunity to improve. I hope the club have done it the best way possible.”

Pep Clotet was an assistant manager at Leeds United, under Garry Monk, who surprisingly resigned at the end of the previous season and took over Middlesbrough.

Clotet did not want to follow his former partner, and instead, he had decided to become the manager of Oxford United.

The Spanish manager met with his previous team this Saturday in a friendly match, which was played as a part of the deal when Kemar Roofe moved to Elland Road from Oxford United. The value of the transfer was £3 million and this friendly game.

The interesting thing is that Roofe scored a goal in Saturday’s match.
