Danny Mills: None of Leeds United new signings have Premier League experience
Danny Mills believes that the influx of new Leeds United signings might not “work” for Jesse Marsch’s side as they head into the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Feyenoord’s Luis Sinisterra arrived at Elland Road on Thursday 8 July to take Marsch’s summer spending over £90million.
However, Mills believes that the six new faces may not benefit Leeds United heading into the new campaign.
Mills told Sky Sports (7 July): “They’re bringing in plenty of bodies and the problem you have sometimes is getting all these people to gel immediately.
“None of these signings know English football or the Premier League.
“Marsch knows these signings but getting them to replicate their work from foreign leagues in the Premier League can be difficult.
“When you make ten or eleven signings it sometimes doesn’t work.”
Leeds needed signings
What did Mills realistically expect Leeds to be doing in this transfer window.
The Whites’ squad was thin and lacking quality towards the end of last season and the club have seriously backed Marsch in an attempt to rectify their horrific 2021/22 season.
Marsch is untested in the Premier League but clearly trusts in his methods and the players that he has added.
Leeds could’ve looked at bringing in Premier League experience, but that would come at a premium and could still not have reaped rewards for the Whites.
Mills rarely endears himself to many fan bases and he won’t gain any friends at Elland Road after his latest comments.
Leeds needed a fresh approach and a fresh start and that is exactly what they have managed to achieve under Marsch this summer.
Marsch has targetted young and exciting players that could make an impact at Elland Road, but will certainly develop and turn into assets for the club going forward.
Considering the business other teams have undertaken, Leeds are a long way in front in the summer transfer race.
