Rodrigo: Spanish influence at Leeds convinced Junior Firpo

Rodrigo has revealed how Leeds United's Spanish contingent is helping Junior Firpo settle at his new club.

The 24-year-old has featured in two friendlies since joining the Whites from Barcelona.

"Everyone is trying to help him to get used to team, to get used to the way we work," said Rodrigo.

"Of course, it's not easy arriving to a new country, new team-mates, new language, but it's true he has me, [to speak] a little bit of Spanish with him, Rapha, Helder also, so each day he gets more comfortable.

"I'm sure he will do a great season, he will help everyone to do their best next season."
