The ‘one solution’ to ignite Leeds United career after record transfer.

Since becoming Leeds United’s record acquisition in January, Georginio Rutter has had difficulty making an impact, but under Daniel Farke, the youthful forward has started the last three games.

Hard work, in the opinion of Daniel Farke, is the ‘one solution’ for Georgio Rutter to launch his Leeds United career. The record signing has had a difficult time adjusting to life at Elland Road, making just 18 appearances since moving there in January and sometimes going unnoticed as the Whites battled for survival.

The France under-21 international has recently started games for Farke’s team, and he scored in Leeds’ lone league victory so far this season at Ipswich Town. When asked how he had restored Rutter’s self-confidence, the Whites’ head coach advised the striker to concentrate on all facets of his game while evaluating his attackers during their most recent match, a scoreless draw at home against Sheffield Wednesday.

There is only ever one remedy, according to Farke, and that is hard labor. The message is more along the lines of, “Come on work hard to bring yourself into a really good fitness level and concentrate on the performances because it never works if you’re just playing with ‘I have to score, I have to score’ and you put yourself under pressure.” Rather than psychological games or anything like that. More often than not, it’s more along the lines of “don’t concentrate on being a really good teammate, to link the play, to work good against the ball,” and then goals will occasionally just happen.

“I was a striker, I had these spells, so sometimes you just have to watch a ball and the ball goes in and you can’t explain why and sometimes you find it difficult to use your chances. So during these periods it’s always important not to feel sorry for yourself or to complain, it’s more like concentrate on working hard for the team and then the goals will come automatically, not just for Georgi but also like Joel Piroe, for example, for Patrick Bamford when he’s back, with also other players like Joe Gelhardt, for example, who can play also up front, this is a major topic.

“All in all I have to say yes, we have missed many chances on the last home game against Sheffield but, the game before the offensive lads were brilliant so Ipswich were not able to handle our quality and all our offensive players. So the momentum can change quite quick and so one game that we found with speaking about we were there was lots of confidence and all our offensive players have scored and in the last game we missed too many chances and then we are speaking about confidence level again. So don’t worry too much about it, just concentrate on hard work and then I think we have enough quality that the goals will come.”
