Leeds United out on loan star Brenden Aaronson has admitted it has been tough for him to sit on the bench at Union Berlin, but is now looking to kick on following his first goal for the side.


Following Leeds United’s relegation to the Championship, Aaronson left the Whites on loan to join Union Berlin.


The 23-year-old attacking midfielder on Saturday helped his team to a 1-0 victory over Hoffenheim by coming off the bench and scoring the only goal of the game.




Aaronson, who has yet to establish himself as a regular in Union Berlin’s starting line-up, admitted that it is difficult for him to sit on the bench as he is used to playing regularly.


The Leeds loanee believes he can create a lot of chances and stated that his goal is to build on his performance in the Hoffenheim game to contribute more goals and assists.



“I do not want this to sound far-fetched, but I have always played a lot”, Aaronson told German daily Bild.


“That is why it was difficult to sit on the bench and think: I should actually be playing.



“That is normal for any player.


“I can create a lot of chances with my style of play; I want to build on that and hopefully contribute a lot more goals and assists.”


Aaronson has featured 18 times in the league for the German outfit and he will be hoping to finish the rest of the season on a high note before he returns to Leeds in the summer.
