Leeds United squad must match Rasmus Kristensen satisfaction standards

Rasmus Kristensen may have only been a Leeds United player for six matches but he is already setting a very high bar for his teammates.

The 25-year-old has been involved in every game he has been available for from the very start of his career at Elland Road, forcing Luke Ayling and Cody Drameh to watch on from the bench for the most part.

But despite his reasonably impressive start to life in the Premier League, having won the Austrian Bundesliga with RB Salzburg last season, he admitted that he is still not happy with how he has been playing.

“I think my form has been solid. We have played well,” the Danish international said to BBC West Yorkshire Sport. “Some games defensively, we have had massive results. I would like to be more active going forward. I am satisfied, but I am not happy.”

To be unhappy about playing in six Premier League matches so soon after arriving and looking the part in each one of them shows a huge desire to be the very best in his position.

You get the feeling that Kristensen just won’t be content until he wins the Ballon D’Or as a right-back and that attitude is something that every single Leeds United player should be instilling into their own minds.
