"You never win playing badly, you never win if you don't attack, you never win if you don't take into account the use of the ball," the 63-year-old told Sky Sports News. "Ferguson was a huge head coach and he never won without style.

Leeds will move three points clear at the top of the table if they beat Middlesbrough on Friday night.
