New Leeds United signing Paul Robinson is looking forward to a fresh start at Elland Road and the chance to play some games after joining on a month`s loan from Bolton Wanderers.
Robinson signed for Leeds on Tuesday and he was an unused substitute in the game at Hull City on Tuesday night.
The 33 year old is with Leeds for the next seven games up until April 9th and he wants to get some games under his belt and try and help Leeds into the play off places.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Robinson said, “I wanted to get out and play games, which I wasn`t doing at Bolton. For me it was about keeping my fitness and coming to a big club like Leeds it was a no brainer, I just want to come here and get some games under my belt.
“It has been very frustrating for me. I was playing my best football and putting my body on the line for the club but obviously, they thought differently, so it was very frustrating for me as a person and a player.
“I am just happy now to be out of the place for a bit, get my head right and come to Leeds, encourage the lads and help the lads get some good results and try and get in the play-offs.”
Robinson admitted that manager Neil Warnock was a huge factor in him coming to Elland Road and he couldn`t wait to get it done. “Neil Warnock was a massive part of my decision to join. He is a great character and there are not many of those in football.
“When he spoke to the club and wanted to sign me, I just wanted to get it done and come and work for him, meet the lads and have a fresh start,” continued Robinson.
The versatile defender, who can play anywhere across the defence has made just two appearances in 2012, both against Macclesfield in the FA Cup Third Round but he says he is fit and raring to go when the opportunity arises. “I am fit and raring to go but the team are playing well so you cannot complain.
You have to be patient. In football, you know you just have to keep working hard, training hard so when your chance comes you have to take it and that is what I will do,” added the former Watford and West Brom defender.
Robinson has made over 500 appearances during a career spanning 16 years and he has previously helped Watford and West Brom on two occasions win promotion to the Premier League.
