'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Austin - Wonderful being part of it at Leeds

Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin says the move to Elland Road this summer has improved him as a player and he is loving the affection shown to him by the Leeds fans.

Austin joined Leeds in the summer from Norwegian top-flight team SK Brann and he feels his international chances have improved now that he is playing at a tougher level of football in the English championship.

The midfielder is currently on international duty with Jamaica as they try to book their place in the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

Austin spoke to the Jamaican Observer newspaper this week when he said, 'It will help my international football because when you play with better players you will automatically improve and that is what I am doing now. It will help me with my game in terms of, I think I'm now better able to take care of the ball and I feel more confident now as a player than before.

'It is where I have always wanted to be and now that I'm there I just give my all and do my best in training and in games and just enjoy it because I'm comfortable.'


Austin, who signed a three-year deal at Elland Road, is an ever present so far this season and he has quickly endeared himself to the Leeds faithful with his combative, no nonsense play in the Leeds midfield and he says it is a good feeling to have the fans behind him. 'It is amazing to be a Jamaican and get the love that I get there. They have a song there for me already and anywhere I get the ball they shout 'shoot!', and when I tackle, the place erupts. It's a good feeling and it's a good place to play at home and even away from home, because a lot of fans travel to these games, so it is wonderful to be a part of that,' added Austin.

Austin played just thirteen minutes for Jamaica as a second half substitute in their latest qualifying game against Guatemala on Friday night.

He was a doubt for the game after picking up an ankle injury in Leeds 1-0 win over Barnsley last weekend and he was a doubt for the game all week.

Jamaica lost the game in Guatemala 2-1 and face an uphill task to make the next phase of qualifying for the 2014 finals.

They are now three points behind both Guatemala and USA, who meet on Tuesday night. Jamaica need to win and hope there is a winner in the clash between Guatemala and USA to have any chance of progression.
