Webber - You know where you stand with Warnock

Webber - You know where you stand with Warnock

Recent Leeds United signing Danny Webber is a man who knows exactly what boss Neil Warnock wants from his players.

Webber was Warnock`s first signing at Elland Road and the attacker says you know exactly where you stand with the Leeds manager.

The 30 year old spent two and a half seasons with Warnock at Sheffield United and he knows the expectations of his manager.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Webber said, "There`s no beating around the bush.

"With him it`s exactly what it says on the tin. If you`re not pulling your weight he`ll tell you: 'pull your finger out!`

"But he knows how to manage players and man-management is probably the biggest thing.

"There are managers who get a lot of out a bunch of players who aren`t necessarily the most technical. On the other hand, there are managers who don`t have good man-management skills and can`t get a lot out of very good players.

"If you do what he asks and do what`s necessary then you`ll get his backing. He`s always like that, whether you`re going through good times or bad times. It`s why so many of his teams have had so much success."


Webber enjoyed a successful spell with Warnock at Sheffield United, after initially joining him on loan from Watford in March 2005.

His initial loan spell turned into a full time contract in the summer of 2005 and he played a key part in helping Sheffield United win promotion to the Premier League in 2006.

Webber was a regular for Warnock during their one season in the Premier League before Warnock departed the South Yorkshire club following their relegation to the championship.

He remained with the blades until the summer of 2009 before moving back into the Premier League with Portsmouth.

An injury ravaged two years were spent on the South coast before his release at the end of last season.

Warnock offered him the opportunity of a return to the Premier League when he was given a trial with Warnock`s newly promoted Queens Park Rangers last summer but injury ruled out any deal.
Webber has spent six frustrating months in the wilderness before Warnock once again gave him an opportunity at Elland Road, where he has signed a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Despite being short of match fitness, Webber has already showed glimpses of his ability. He was very unlucky not to mark his debut from the substitute`s bench last week against Southampton with a goal, with Saints keeper Kelvin Davis twice-thwarting Webber with great saves.

Webber made his first start in eleven months when he started the midweek game against Hull City and he lasted 78 minutes before being replaced by Lloyd Sam.

He will be hoping for his second start in a row when Leeds travel to Middlesbrough today, something he hasn`t done in exactly two years.
