Jermaine Beckford Claims The £15 Million Player Has Done “Wonders” For Leeds, Displaying “Leadership Qualities.”

Jermaine Beckford told Leeds United’s Matchday Show that Joe Rodon has done “wonders” for the club since signing from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, praising the Welshman’s “leadership qualities.”

Rodon, 25, has shone for Leeds, preserving four clean sheets in seven starts in defense. The Wales international has forged an excellent relationship with Pascal Struijk in the midst of the back line.

Leeds have four wins in their last six in the League, pushing Daniel Farke’s men into the top six as we enter the second international break of the season. Rodon has been absolutely central to that form.
Rodon has been exceptional – proving why Tottenham spent £15m to sign him in October 2020. Now, Beckford has given his verdict on the Leeds defender – saying he has improved Leeds at the back.

“He was in a scenario where he should not have been sent off. I can see the leadership traits he possesses. He and Struijk get along wonderfully. It worked beautifully, keeping everything tight in the back.”
