Sky Sports pundit suggests he was wrong about Leeds United signing Brenden Aaronson and co
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...
Paul Robinson has suggested he admits he might have been wrong about the players Leeds United have signed this summer.
Leeds lost Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips to Barcelona and Manchester City respectively and have used the funds gained from those sales to bring in the likes of Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen and Tyler Adams.
While those three players have impressed Robinson in the early stages of the new Premier League season, the former Leeds goalkeeper was initially underwhelmed with their arrivals, telling MOT Leeds News on 15 June that “Kristensen and Aaronson are not players who fill you with excitement“.
However, Robinson seems to have changed his tune a bit after seeing the two arrivals from Red Bull Salzburg, plus former RB Leipzig ace Adams, performing superbly in the Premier League.
Robinson told MOT Leeds News this week: “All three of them have been excellent.
“We’ve talked a lot about the lack of Premier League experience and the lack of players who know the league.
“Aaronson, Kristensen and Adams have come in and Aaronson, in particular, you’ve got to give a lot of credit to for hitting the ground running.
“They’re playing the way the managers likes to play – the formation and the system – and they seem to have settled in well.
“Early signs are very, very good.“
Rodrigo’s form has also wowed Robinson with the Spanish forward scoring four goals in the first three Premier League games of the campaign.
He added: “Rodrigo looks like a new signing as well. He looks like a completely different player. I don’t know where he’s been for the last two years”
