Former Leeds United star Noel Whelan has been on social media expressing his wish that he could wear the badge once more.
Whelan now works as a pundit for BBC Radio Leeds, commentating on the games and offering his expert advice, but he’s been reacting this morning to news of a new Leeds kit.
They’ve released a third kit in yellow and blue, an easy on the eye homage to the glory days of the seventies and late eighties. Their current third kit of dark blue will clash with West Brom this weekend, prompting the new effort.
Whelan was replying to the BBC’s Adam Pope who tweeted about the kit. In reply 43-year old Whelan said; “Sexy strip , damn wish I could wear that badge again playing for Leeds Popester.”
Whelan came through the youth ranks at Leeds, despite having trials with Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton. He scored seven goals in 48 appearances before leaving to undertake a nomadic career featuring spells with Coventry, Middlesbrough, Boston United and Aberdeen.
His insight on the current Leeds regime and his standing as a former player makes him one of the more informed and interesting pundits currently covering their Premier League promotion push.
Noel Whelan wouldn’t get into the current Leeds side, even in his exciting early days. His career never hit the heights it could have done, which isn’t bad considering he has over a hundred Premier League appearances to his name.
He’s not wrong about the kit though, it is a beauty and Leeds have made a mjor public relations gain this morning with it’s release.
