People Underestimate It – Leeds United Star On Reason For Improved Form

 




Chris Wood has insisted that Leeds United head coach Garry Monk’s belief in him played a big role behind his improved goalscoring record this season.

The striker was in prolific form in front of goal in the recently ended campaign, scoring 30 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, with 27 of those coming in the Championship, thereby making him the division’s top goalscorer.




Wood, who joined Leeds from Leicester City in 2015, managed just 13 goals in 37 games for the Whites last season.

And the New Zealand international explained that his dramatic improvement in form this term is largely due to Monk, who took charge of Leeds last summer.

 


“I can’t put it down to one thing”, Wood said on FIFA’s official site, when asked the reason behind his improved record this season.

“But I have had a team and manager [at Leeds] that has backed me throughout the whole season, and people underestimate the value of having a manager that backs you and has belief in you.”

Wood’s 27 goals were not enough for Leeds to reach the playoffs as they narrowly missed out on a top six finish.

The 25-year-old, whose present contract with Leeds runs until 2019, has been linked with a move away from Elland Road this summer, with Premier League outfits West Ham United, Stoke City and Southampton interested in him.
