Reid Gets Roque Backing

Last updated : 14 November 2003 By Kevin Markey

Roque Junior, a loan signing from Milan, has been disappointing so far and has failed to have the expected impact at Leeds.

But he said: 'If some of the guys think Reid gives players a hard time, I don't see the problem.

'I worked with Felipe Scolari who won the World Cup, Carlo Ancelotti who won the Champions League with Milan and Wanderley Luxemburgo who was also Brazil coach. So I know what tough is.

'I do not care what the media say about Reid but I do care about what I see with my own eyes on the training pitch and Reid's work methods are among the best I have ever seen.

'I just wish there were more coaches with vision and imagination like him.'
