Plenty of Leeds United fans have sent messages of congratulations to Eddie Nketiah as the former Whites’ striker helped Arsenal to victory in the FA Cup final on Saturday evening.
Nketiah spent the first half of the season on loan at Elland Road and, although he failed to secure a regular starting role in Marcelo Bielsa’s side, he remains a popular figure in West Yorkshire.

Do you know the club these 15 Leeds players started their career with?
The 21-year-old appeared 19 times for the Whites and earned himself a winners medal as a result, netting five goals in the process, before being recalled by The Gunners in January where he has become a regular part of the first-team set-up.
He has since made 13 appearances in the top-flight for Mikael Arteta’s men, scoring twice, and came on for the final eight minutes against Chelsea on Saturday.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang may have scored both goals in the 2-1 win, but it was Nketiah who was targeted for the most praise from Leeds fans at full time after securing his second medal of the season…
Well done Eddie on your achievements from Chorley whites 😀
