‘Very reliable leader’ at Leeds United is already looking out for £3.8m new signing in training

Leeds United have released the latest behind-the-scenes video of the squad in training on their official YouTube channel.

Leeds have an extended mid-season break after their final match before the international break was postponed.

The squad are still hard at work and it gives Jesse Marsch an opportunity to bed in his new signings.

Marsch’s final summer signing was £3.8m Italian international Wilfried Gnonto.

Gnonto joined the Whites from FC Zurich in the final hours of deadline day.

Jesse Marsch was already admitted that the 18-year-old isn’t ready for the Premier League yet.

However, he’s already been spotted in Leeds first-team training before and was seen again in this latest video.

At the start of the training video, you can see Adam Forshaw and Gnonto sitting next to each other on two bikes.

Forshaw can be seen asking Gnonto when he got back and trying to learn more about the youngster.

It’s no surprise that Forshaw is already looking out for Gnonto at Leeds.

Marsch has already described the 30-year-old as a ‘very reliable leader’.

One of Forshaw’s roles in the squad will be to look out for the younger players and new signings.

The central midfielder came into the season injured, but has made three appearances of the bench in the Premier League.

New signings Marc Roca and Tyler Adams have been Marsch’s first-choice midfielders all season.

However, Forshaw certainly has a big role to play off the pitch as well as on it at Leeds.

And if can help integrate Gnonto into the squad, then that will benefit everyone at the club.
