Leeds United have been on a bad run of form in the Championship after a great start to their campaign.
The Whites’ three defeats in a row prior to their win this weekend have raised questions over the squad’s ability to keep up the performance level for extended periods of time but former Leeds United player and manager, Eddie Gray has suggested that the gaffer needs to change his midfield a bit in the league.
Gray is massively respected amongst the Leeds fans due to his tremendous 577 appearances for the club. The player then went on to manage his club as well and came back again after the first stint as well.
Leeds had been leading the table after a great run of fixtures in the second division but three consecutive losses have stopped their momentum.
According to Gray, the manager, Thomas Christiansen should change up the formation and play three midfielders to deal with the press as well as dominate the ball in the middle of the park.
In Leeds match against Reading, Leeds were too sloppy on the ball which according to Gray was due to the lack of confidence the players have right now.
While Christiansen has been rotating the players well enough to keep everyone fresh and has shown the intent to drop underperforming players, there has been no intention from his side to change the formation that Leeds play in.
With Gray urging the manager to change up the formation a bit to ensure that Leeds get their swagger back in the midfield, whether or not Christiansen listens to Gray advice is totally up to him in the end.
