Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips has recently spoken about his pride of playing for his boyhood club Leeds United.
The midfielder has been a hugely important player for Marcelo Bielsa this season, with the Yorkshire club currently sitting within touching distance of the automatic promotion places.
The 22-year old has started every single game under the Argentinean’s management, and after recently speaking to the club’s website, Phillips has insisted that he “loves playing for Leeds”.
“I love playing for Leeds, it is my city and if I can do that for the rest of my life I would love it”, Phillips said.
“I’m from Leeds and I’ve always known what the crowds are like – it is just an honour for me to pull on the White shirt every week and play in front of them”
“There are not many fans that you get who travel both home and away – the numbers away from home are ridiculous and we just want to reward them by getting back to the Premier League”, he added.
Here, we take a look at Leeds fans’ reactions to the homegrown star’s positive message…
This is why I love @Kalvinphillips down to earth lad, and emits pride and passion every game. More youths like this lad and were golden!
