Leeds United head-coach Neil Redfearn has praised full-back Stephen Warnock for his impressive performances this season at the club.
Speaking to LUTV, Redfearn said: “Do you know what? He’s been a credit this season. He’s a good pro, he’s a top pro and someone I admire a lot. And I respect him a lot.”
“He earned the captain’s armband, his performances this season have been really good.
“He’s got good knowledge of the game, he affects others around him, so he’s an ideal type to be a captain.”
The 32-year-old defender stood in as captain of the Yorkshire club when they faced Charlton Athletic on Tuesday, as a result of the injury to regular captain Jason Pearce.
Neil Redfearn’s side face Championship strugglers Blackpool on Saturday at Elland Road, in what is a must win game for Leeds United.
Meanwhile, further turmoil has hit the club after yet another winding-up petition has been lodged against the club as a result of unpaid fees, read more HERE.
