LUFC Warnock wants players to revel in atmosphere

LUFC Warnock wants players to revel in atmosphere

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock is looking for the players to revel in the atmosphere this season and he wants to make Elland Road a stadium opposition players do not want to come and play at.

Warnock has not been able to hide his appreciation of the Leeds fans since his arrival in February and after another large following followed Leeds to Preston in the pre-season game at Deepdale on Saturday, Warnock wants his squad to revel in the atmosphere this season. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "A friendly game with that sort of following, it is a super club in that respect. Expectations are higher because of that but I think you need to revel in it."

Leeds lost a club record twelve games at Elland Road last season and Warnock felt the squad last season was in awe of the Leeds crowd, which made the players nervous.

Warnock has brought in ten new players this summer and those that have played so far in pre-season have been amazed by the large Leeds following.

Leeds spent a week in Cornwall and Devon playing three games, which also included an open training session.

Over 1,000 Leeds fans attended the games at Tavistock and Bodmin as well as the open training session at the start of the week before an estimated 3,000 fans made the trip for the game with Torquay on the Friday.

Warnock now wants the players to revel in the atmosphere and make Elland Road a place opposition players do not like playing in. "I do not think you should be in awe. When I arrived last season I thought we was a little bit in awe and nervous.

"You have to relish in it and make it that you don`t want to come and play us at Elland Road,"
added Warnock.

Leeds start their season with two games at Elland Road. Shrewsbury Town are first up when the League One side come to Elland Road for the Capital One League Cup tie next Saturday.

The following Saturday, Leeds kick off their championship season with a home game against relegated Wolverhampton Wanderers.
