Decision-makers at the top of Leeds United can be trusted to make the right choices this summer and retain the full faith of manager Daniel Farke. The Whites boss remains confident, despite falling short of promotion by one goal, Paraag Marathe and his board have put the club on the right path with a second bite of the Championship cherry to come in August.

Farke was asked to give supporters some reassurance about what the future may hold for the club after Sunday’s loss, but he did not feel immediately after the final was the right time for such a message. The German think it is right the next few days allow the disappointment and pain to sink in before the levers are pulled on 2024/25’s project.

“Well, it's not the day for me right now to speak about, like I mentioned, to deliver upbeat messages and to speak too much about what will be the situation in the summer,” he said. “After you lose a final, it's important also to be disappointed, to allow yourself to be disappointed and then to speak about what will happen in the summer.

“I totally trust this club. I totally trust these key people because my experience is, since I signed the contract, after an obviously difficult start with all the exit clauses and what we had to suffer until September, this club is totally on the right path.

“To go into details [of] what we will do and [say] we will be even stronger than right now, it's the wrong moment to give these messages straight after the final. There will be a moment to speak about [this], but not today.”
