LUFC Snodgrass - Captaincy won't change me
New Leeds United captain Robert Snodgrass says being named the Leeds captain will not change the way he plays.
Snodgrass was named the Leeds captain for the remainder of the season following the arrival of Neil Warnock as manager last week and he wore the armband in the 0-0 draw at Portsmouth on Saturday.
Speaking on LUTV, Snodgrass said, "The manager spoke to me during the week and he said he wanted an outfield player to be the captain. I was captain against Millwall and that turned into a good day.
"I know the lads well and we need to encourage the young players in the team. It is an easy job because we have a hard working bunch of lads. I do not do anything differently because naturally I try to win a game anyway.
"I would show my frustration to the team if they were not up to scratch that is the way I have always been, so it doesn`t change anything."
The winger was playing in his new role in the hole but he looked a frustrated figure in the first half as the game generally passed him by.
The Scotland international had the ball in the net only for it to be ruled out for offside in a closely fought contest.
Snodgrass continues the tradition of Scottish Leeds captains with Billy Bremner and Gordon Strachan the last two Leeds captains to lead the side to the First Division title.
