Manager David Wagner full of praises for Leeds United after a competitive game at Elland Road

Norwich City boss David Wagner issues big Leeds United praise and cites main Whites annoyance

After a strong previous run, Wagner’s Canaries entered Wednesday night’s Championship match in West Yorkshire in eighth place in the standings. However, the game’s lone goal came via a header by Patrick Bamford in the first half.

During the post-match news conference, Wagner praised Leeds, who are currently in fourth position, as a “top team” with “super offensive individuals.” However, he expressed his biggest frustration with the loss being his team’s lack of aggression and composure.

Wagner also pointed out that Norwich wasted a particularly excellent opportunity in first-half stoppage time when Gabriel Sara missed from close range, but the Canaries manager insisted his team will learn from the setback given the difficult task they had ahead of them away against Daniel Farke’s Whites.

Wagner reasoned, “We should split the summary into two different things.” “One is the outcome, which can be quite frustrating, and the other is the performance. We gave Leeds a true test; these kinds of contests are determined by narrow margins.We had a great opportunity with Gabriel Sara, we should have defended the goal much better, and in the second half, we weren’t as ruthless. This is one of the main causes of our defeat. Congratulations to Leeds, a fantastic team full of offensive players. I believe we managed to calm them down. They created their opportunities in the second half when we mishandled the ball. Without a last-minute punch in the box, we truly pinned them in the last three minutes. We continued on and looked good.

The performance is perfect, in my opinion. The circumstances before to goals, where we need to be more composed on the ball and more aggressive in 50:50 matches, are what irritate me the most. We stated that ball possession would be our first priority, and that we would also need to play rough and aggressive in 50:50 circumstances.”The guys performed admirably for extended stretches of time, but regrettably not before the goal. From it, we will learn. Leeds is never easy to play away from home, especially given their home record this season, but we gave them a chance. Today, the slimmest of margins decided against us.
