Warnock wants instant improvement

Leeds United

Leeds' new manager Neil Warnock expects a swift improvement in his side after acknowledging time is not on his side if he wants to win another promotion.

Warnock has steered seven clubs to promotion during a 32-year managerial career – Notts County, Sheffield United and QPR all to the top flight – and has signed a contract at Elland Road until the end of next season in a bid to make Leeds his eighth.

“Usually when you come in as a manager, you say it’s going to take you two or three years to build the club,” Warnock told the club’s official website. “I haven’t got two or three years so I don’t want that.

“I want to try and win every game and see it where it takes us. That’s what I said to the players on Saturday: ‘The situation is we have to beat Doncaster Rovers, there’s nothing else about it.”‘

Warnock added: “We move on now, we have a week’s training and I expect us to be a little bit better next weekend. We have to grab the opportunity now and try to get as many points as we can. I expect them to be better at Portsmouth and a lot better against Southampton.”
