Daniel Farke ‘wanted to kill’ after Leeds United’s loss at Southampton, but he outlines his goals.

The Leeds United manager commented on the setback to Southampton and the preparations for the match against QPR.


Daniel Farke, manager of Leeds United, claims he still ‘wanted to murder’ the morning after the Whites’ humiliating defeat at Southampton. He has urged his players to experience the same disappointment as they seek re-election to the Premier League.

After a strong couple of weeks in the Championship, the Whites‘ head coach says he tries his best to mask his feelings and look at the result objectively.

“No, and that’s perfectly fine,” Farke responded when asked if the defeat was disproportionate. “I’ll never be able to get used to losing football games.” The next day, I don’t want to get out of bed, I don’t want to talk about football, and if somebody happens to come by, I still want to kill.

“It will always be the same, as it was 20 years ago and will be in 20 years.” Despite the fact that we had gone six games unbeaten and four clean sheets in the previous weeks, I still want to kill.


“I try to keep my emotions hidden because no one wants an emotional killer as a manager and head coach.” It is always the same.

“To be honest, I want my squad and players to feel this disappointment because there is no substitute for the winning feeling after the game.” I also admire how everyone in our team, even our fans, feels the same pain after a loss.

“I think it’s important to feel this, but also to stay objective and remember that the players aren’t robots, but human beings when you’ve slept one night and can clam down a little bit.” It is, indeed, the Championship.
