Sky Sports pundit shares whether Daniel Farke job at Leeds United is under threat

We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United …

Leeds United’s “indifferent” start is understandable, but they “need to win” against Millwall after the international break, according to Paul Robinson.

While 15th-place may be below expectations, the Elland Road faithful have remained patient with Daniel Farke as he did move to Yorkshire in the best of circumstances.

With relegation, a huge squad upheaval and an ownership change, there was plenty to do off the pitch before improvements were to be seen on the pitch.

However, Robinson has claimed their next Championship clash, Millwall away on Sunday (17 September), must be won to help them climb the table and avoid questions being asked of the German. The Whites must harness the energy from their convincing victory over Ipswich to boost their fortunes.

When asked what Leeds will need to do to win against Millwall, Robinson exclusively told MOT Leeds News: “Well, a winning performance like they did at Portman Road against Ipswich where they went away and scored four goals. Piroe looked good for me, he looks like he could get 20 to 25 goals this season.

“If they played to the strengths and the attacking third like they did at Ipswich, who let’s not forget started off the season really well and were in really good form.

“But, it’s always difficult – a game at 12 o’clock on a Sunday after the international break, it’s not an ideal time, but it’s a game that Leeds will need to win.

“Farke’s job is not in question yet. I mean, yes, they’ve had an indifferent start to the season, but there are reasons as to why: injuries, him coming in late, etcetera, et cetera.

“If they’re still in 15th in the next international break then there’ll be questions asked. That’s just the nature of the beast, unfortunately.”
