Promotion winning winger the latest former player to send message to Leeds United on special day

West Ham United player and former Leeds United winger Robert Snodgrass has become the latest player to send his birthday wishes to the Whites as they celebrate their 99th year of existence. 

The video was tweeted from the club’s official account and in which the 31-year-old thanked the club for all the great memories he had with them.

He scored ten goals and assisted 14 more as the club were promoted back to the second tier from League One at the end of the 2009/10 season.

Snodgrass made nearly 200 appearances for Leeds, scoring 41 goals and assisting 40 during his time, becoming a star man in both the Championship and League One.

After signing from Livingston in 2008, the Scot was sold on to Norwich City in 2012 for nearly £3million after asserting himself as one of the second tier’s standout men.

Leeds have been on brilliant form under Marcelo Bielsa this season and will be confident of securing a long-awaited return to the top-flight under the Argentinian.

They currently sit in third place with just two points separating them from top-spot which is currently occupied by Sheffield United.

The Verdict 

Snodgrass was an absolute delight to watch during his time at Elland Road.

Although his transfer may have left a bit of a sour taste at the time, he will always be looked back on as one of the club’s best players of the last ten years.

Given that, most fans will be pleased to see the player speak so happily about his time in Yorkshire.
