We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has urged Leeds to sign former Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic.
The 35-year-old keeper is currently a free agent after leaving Monaco this summer after eight years at the club.
Subasic is a former Croatia international who last represented his country at the 2018 World Cup, where he helped his side reach the final where they lost to France.
Robinson claims that Subasic has got everything Leeds need – experience and stability.
Subasic was reportedly on £36k-a-week at Monaco before he left the club this summer.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “Subasic would be a great signing for Leeds, he’s an outstanding goalkeeper, he was brilliant for Croatia in the World Cup.
“I think he’s a top keeper and the fact he’s still a free agent and that no one has snapped him up yet after he left Monaco is surprising.
“He fits the bill of what’s needed at Leeds – experience, stability, someone you can rely on. I’m very surprised he hasn’t been snapped up yet. Maybe it’s that his agent wants too much money or he’s not fit, I don’t know…
“I’m really surprised a player of his ability is a free agent. Anyone who needs a keeper, he would deliver for them at the moment.”
Illan Meslier is the current number one at Leeds and has had the gloves since Kiko Casilla was banned for racist abuse last year.
Casilla is still at Leeds despite being tipped for a summer exit but is currently injured. That’s left young Under-23s keeper Elia Caprile as back-up in the Premier League.
Robinson thinks that Leeds are crying out for another experienced goalie saying, “I think you need three strong goalkeepers in the Premier League.”
