In the run to the 2022–23 Premier League season, Danny Mills worries that Jesse Marsch’s team’s surge of new Leeds United acquisitions may not “work.”
On Thursday, July 8, Luis Sinisterra of Feyenoord arrived at Elland Road to push Marsch’s summer spending above £90 million.
Mills thinks that Leeds United may not gain from the six new players going into the upcoming season.
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, sometimes it doesn’t work.”
The club has given Marsch its full support in an effort to turn around the disastrous 2021–22 season. The Whites’ roster was lean and lacking in quality toward the end of the previous campaign.
Marsch is unproven in the Premier League but is evidently confident in his strategies and the new players he has brought in.
Although it would have cost more and possibly not produced any benefits for the Whites, Leeds could have considered bringing in players with Premier League experience.
Mills seldom wins over large fan groups, and his most recent remarks will make it difficult for him to make friends at Elland Road.
Leeds required a new strategy and a new beginning, and this summer, under Marsch, they have succeeded in doing just that.
