Jermaine Beckford criticizes Leeds”very disappointing’ performance against Southampton despite the team’s “uncharacteristic” result.

Jermaine Beckford believes that Leeds United won’t return to their previous level of play “anytime soon” after their 3-1 loss to Southampton. The expert claimed during live interview on Sky Sports that Southampton’s unexpected tactics helped Daniel Farke’s team struggle in the opening period of the match, but their exceptional play was too much for Leeds.

However, Beckford was keen to dismiss any idea of fundamental problems at Elland Road, claiming

Beckford said, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post: “I think Southampton’s game plan completely threw Leeds United off. It was very frustrating, they just didn’t seem to get in the groove of things at all. They were second to most balls, especially in that first half.
“Southampton were fantastic, they moved the ball really well, they didn’t keep the ball at the back as I expected them to do, they changed their game plan very, very quickly and very cleverly. It was an uncharacteristic performance from Leeds United and one that I don’t expect to see again any time soon.”
