Leeds United forward Tyler Roberts has admitted that he is looking to use the enforced break to his advantage at the upcoming European Championships next year.
The Welsh international could have been running out at the EUROs this summer, but the Coronavirus pandemic has seen it postponed until next year.
Roberts could now get the chance to go to the tournament with a year of Premier League experience behind him – something that has given him high levels of excitement.
The Leeds youngster is using this break to his advantage and urged people to try and take the positives.
“You’ve got to look at the positives,” he told Leeds Live.
“It could work in my favour for Wales, a whole season to show what I’m about and hopefully get better and play more minutes in the Euros because obviously this season has been stop and start for me.”
That is also depending on whether or not Roberts would actually get picked for the tournament, something an extra year of action could certainly help.
Roberts did reveal that Ryan Giggs has stayed in touch with his squad during the break though, saying that his players need to keep going and be at the top of their level for next summer.
The 21-year-old was starting to hit form before the break, with his cameo in the 4-0 win at Hull City just a snippet of how he can perform under Marcelo Bielsa.
Bielsa unleashed him for 23 minutes and Roberts scored a brace from two shots, something which led to fans calling for him to replace Patrick Bamford – something which looks unlikely at this moment in time.
