Leeds fans rave over Ben White following individual award

Championship Picks

Leeds fans have seemingly taken to Ben White as though he was one of their own. The defender earned plaudits after his performance against Stoke a few weeks ago but now they’ve been left drooling over him again.

The 21-year-old’s impressive start to life at Elland Road was capped off by winning the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award for August, an accolade that Patrick Bamford was also nominated for.

White has looked imperious at the back since joining Marcelo Bielsa’s side and Leeds supporters have been left delighted with the news, sharing their views on the centre-back.

One labelled him a class act whilst a further fan suggested his market value had increased to as much as £85m so far this season.

Another supporter said the award was well deserved with one member of the Elland Road faithful saying he’d been superb.

White has taken to the Championship like a duck to water, winning 2.8 aerial duels per match during his time at Leeds so far. As well as that, he’s won 2.5 tackles and 4.2 interceptions per game according to WhoScored.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
