David Prutton, speaking to Sky Sports, has shared that Daniel Farke is highly pleased with Georginio Rutter, the Leeds United forward, because of his exceptional “work ethic.” Consequently, Rutter has earned a spot on Prutton’s Championship Team of the Season, despite a challenging start to his career at Elland Road. Rutter, aged 21, opted to stay with the club despite interest from Borussia Dortmund and Lyon, and he has truly transformed his fortunes.
While his statistics may only show five goals and assists in 10 Championship matches, Rutter is impressively leading the line for Leeds. He has formed a strong partnership with Joel Piroe in the final third, and some of his performances have demonstrated that he is a cut above the competition in the second-tier English football. This achievement not only reflects his talent but also his determination to stay and make a difference.
Former Leeds player Prutton included Rutter in his Team of the Season on Sky Sports and highlighted Farke’s satisfaction with the Frenchman’s work rate. Prutton acknowledged Rutter’s contribution of two goals and three assists, noting his ability to create scoring opportunities. However, he also emphasized the need for Rutter to be more clinical in front of the goal, not only due to his significant price tag but also considering the chances he’s been given at Leeds United.
Rutter’s performances for Leeds have been nothing short of sensational, providing hope for fans of a possible return to the Premier League. His flair and audacity on the field have been truly remarkable, showcasing his natural talent, which is now being effectively nurtured under the guidance of Farke, a former striker. If Rutter maintains this form and stays injury-free, Leeds may well secure promotion. Nevertheless, Farke must continue to utilize Rutter wisely, not overburdening him and allowing him to do his job effectively. When the time is right, Rutter can fully express his potential.
