By Harvey Byrne
Goalkeeper Rob Green has stated that the Leeds support is one that is “absolutely desperate for success” after joining in the summer.
The 36-year-old former England international joined Garry Monk’s side after his contract ran out at Championship rivals QPR.
He has secured the spot as the club’s number one and he has spoken of how the support at the Yorkshire side is different to what he has experienced with previous club’s.
“There’s always an appreciation of your effort and your performance, provided you perform to a certain level. It’s not like some clubs,” said Green to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“I’ve played at clubs where you get booed off for winning games. You win a game but you get booed off because you’re not winning in the right way, or something like that.

“I’ve never felt that at Elland Road but there are certain standards. The fact that we’ve been hitting higher standards in the last month is probably proven by the atmosphere.
“This is a club and a fanbase who are absolutely desperate for success.”
Green has played for three club’s before joining Leeds in QPR, West Ham and Norwich respectively.
The experienced shot stopper has also won 12 caps for England will be fully aware of the expectations at the famous club.
Leeds have not played in England’s top flight since suffering relegation in 2004 and have even dropped down to League One in the last ten years.
