Leeds United are enjoying their time in Australia as they prepare to kick-off their pre-season tour on Thursday.

The Whites have a host of new arrivals that are now fully a part of the first team under Jesse Marsch, as the side gears up for another season in the Premier League.

After wins over Stoke City and Blackpool in domestic pre-season outings, the side has flown to the other side of the world to take part in pre-season in Australia.

On top of the intense training the players are being put through, they’ve had chance to sample the winter weather Down Under.

Here, we look at some of the latest updates from the players’ social media as they enjoy pre-season…


Starting off with the man who donned the captain’s armband last Thursday, Rodrigo has been a core figure in the side ever since Marsch’s appointment.

Nothing has changed in that regard and the Spaniard took to Instagram to share a photo of the whole squad on the Gold Coast:

Diego Llorente

A fellow Spaniard up next in Diego Llorente now, and after helping Leeds stay up, he will be hoping that the start of this season brings himself and Rodrigo a place in the Spain squad for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

Preparations have been rigorous for the centre-back, as he shared photos on Instagram of a rain-soaked open training session at the Cbus Super Stadium:

One of the main new signings to watch this week is Rasmus Kristensen, who didn’t feature in the win over Blackpool.

Having gained a reputation already as a bit of a powerhouse by the Leeds fanbase, the club have added to the narrative with a glimpse of his gym work, via Instagram:

The squad

The side have clearly spent plenty of time in the gym this week, looking to build up strength for the season ahead.

Making it more enjoyable has helped, with competition in place amongst the players, Illan Meslier’s team came out on top:

Adam Forshaw was not happy as he commented “They cheated!” under the post.
