Former Leeds United midfielder David Prutton has suggested that the club’s recent unwanted results were inevitable.
Under Garry Monk last season, the team pushed for Premier League promotion, but narrowly missed out on a playoff spot.
With Thomas Christiansen now at the helm and Andrea Radrizzani as sole owner of the Yorkshire club, things are looking even brighter.
The start of the season was just short of perfect for the Whites as they picked up five wins and two draws in their first seven matches, putting the club at the top of the standings.
However, the club’s unbeaten run came to an end three weeks ago when the team suffered a 1-0 defeat away to Millwall.
Christiansen’s men turned it around in the following game with a 3-2 triumph over Ipswich Town, but they have since recorded back-to-back defeats to Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday.
The club have dropped to fifth in the table, but only four points separate themselves from the summit.
Despite the disappointing run, Prutton has insisted that there is no need for Leeds to be too concerned.
In a piece for the Yorkshire Evening Post, the former midfielder wrote:
“There’s a balance to be struck between taking bad results seriously and avoiding any overreaction and I don’t think Leeds United are anywhere near knee-jerk territory. I know from my own career at Elland Road that life as a Leeds fan comes with the permanent expectation of being kicked in the b******s so perhaps everyone was ready for this little wobble.”
