Leeds: Robin Koch speaks out after survival

Leeds: Robin Koch speaks out after survival -Leeds United News

Leeds United defender Robin Koch has now suggested he is staying put at Elland Road this summer.

The Lowdown: Exit link

The Whites ensured they’d be playing a third successive year in the Premier League after a 2-1 win over Brentford on the final day.

Koch played at right-back for the final three games after Luke Ayling’s red card at Arsenal, impressing in the daw with Brighton and win over Brentford.

Reports last month stated that Jesse Marsch was planning a defensive overhaul this summer and that Koch’s future was in doubt.

The Whites were thought to be willing to accept an offer in the region of £10m to £11m for the German, however, Koch has now spoken out regarding his Elland Road future.

The Latest: Koch speaks out

Sports Witness relayed comments from Koch’s interview with Sport Bild on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old admitted he is ‘super comfortable’ in Leeds, adding that the journey is ‘not over’.

“I feel super comfortable in the city and at the club and have a contract here. When I joined Leeds we had a project in mind, a journey that is not over for us as a team.”

The Verdict: Keep

Described as ‘magnificent’ by Noel Whelan last season, Koch has certainly shown his versatility under Marsch, emphasising the club’s ‘side before self’ mantra.

He’s played in his main position just twice under the American, turning out as a holding midfielder and right-back on more occasions.

Some have even hinted that he could be the ‘long-term solution’ at right-back following his displays in recent weeks, so hopefully, the Whites will have second thoughts regarding the defender and keep him at the club for Marsch’s first full season.
