Leeds United midfielder Brenden Aaronson is 'ready to go' amidst unfortunate Premier League fixture changes

Brenden Aaronson is raring to go after joining up with the United States national team following some intense work with Leeds United.

With the Leeds Premier League schedule hitting a break until October 2 against Aston Villa, Jesse Marsch has continued hard training sessions, ensuring his players are fit and ready to go.

Aaronson admitted things had been “tough” but declared that he’s fit and raring to go when Premier League action resumes after the international break

Speaking to the Philadelphia Enquirer, the American confirmed that Marsch had been keeping the Whites ship sailing despite fixture cancelations against Nottingham Forest and Manchester United.

“It’s been kind of tough not being able to get back in the swing of things,” said Aaronson.

“But we’ve had some intrasquad [games], and we’ve been training hard. So I feel ready to go,

“When you look at it, you take a step back, it’s like, ‘Wow, this is a crazy year with a lot of games,’ and it’s just all kind of clumped in together. You have to try to stay healthy as best you can, do everything you can to look after yourself, train more, and be ready for these kinds of things.”

The midfielder also spoke about Marsch utilising his versatility to play in multiple positions; something he is more than happy to do for the team.

“Position-wise, it doesn’t really matter, I think,” he added.

“I like playing both positions in different games. I think different games ask different players different opinions on the game.”


The Leeds United marquee signing of the summer is looking like he’ll play a pivotal part in Jesse Marsch’s setup for seasons to come.

At just 21-years-old Leeds could have a real gem on their hands; Aaronson has provided glimpses in his six Premier League appearances of what he’s capable of.

He was harshly denied a debut goal against Wolves in the club’s 2-1 victory on the opening day of the campaign but put in a grafting performance.

Nevertheless, the American was a shining light in the historic 3-0 demolition job of high-flyers Chelsea at Elland Road; scoring his first goal for Marsch’s men.

Another exciting aspect about the youngster is his European pedigree; Aaronson scored twice and provided three assists in the UEFA Champions League last season.

He’s certainly going to be one to watch; Elland Road may be singing Estelle’s catchy ‘American Boy’ in his honour for seasons to come.

In other Leeds United news, a pundit suggests a “world-class” player should be sent to Leeds on loan in January.
