Lucas Radebe has claimed that the Leeds United squad will earn more respect as individuals once the Championship season restarts.

The club legend admitted that he still believes Marcelo Bielsa will guide the Whites back to the Premier League after more than 15 years outside the top-flight.

Radebe claimed he would be eager to get back playing, as some EFL players have refused to play once the division restarts.

With the restart nearly two weeks away, all eyes will be on the prize as far as Radebe is concerned at Elland Road.

“Absolutely,” he told LUTV.

“It gives them an opportunity to earn even more respect as individuals. Again, for me, I’d be looking forward to getting back out on the field and playing as well as I can.

“Everybody has the same goal and there is real unity. For me, I am confident Liam and the team will do it.”

Leeds were on the verge of promotion before the enforced break, with a seven-point gap to Fulham opened up due to their sparkling form.

Scott Parker has already claimed it will be an immense challenge to catch-up, and Radebe seems to believe that Leeds have one foot in the Premier League.
