Farke graciously accepts playoff defeat as Leeds fall short of promotion

Daniel Farke came close to securing his third Premier League promotion, but remained dignified in defeat at Wembley. Farke admitted that the win wasn’t meant to be for Leeds United after they lost to Southampton in the Championship play-off final. Despite dominating large portions of the game, Leeds fell short when Adam Armstrong scored in the first half. The team almost equalized later on when Daniel James hit the crossbar, but now must face another season in the Championship. Farke, although missing out on a third promotion, accepted the loss gracefully. “Football is unpredictable. Southampton was effective today,” he acknowledged. “We had more possession and chances, but they defended well.” The team failed to convert opportunities in the final third, despite their strong start. “We gave our all and were unlucky. It’s a tough day for us,” Farke expressed. “But setbacks like these help us learn and grow. We had a great season overall.” Leeds’ fans were acknowledged for their unwavering support, despite the disappointing loss. “The fans are incredible. We owe it to them to keep pushing forward,” Farke praised.
