Vinnie Jones has hailed Leeds for their fantastic season and believes there is much more to come in the future.
The Whites saw their play-off dreams crushed on the penultimate round of Championship fixtures and they are now unable to finish in the top six.
Garry Monk’s side produced a stunning comeback to salvage a 3-3 draw at home to Norwich on Saturday, but they needed a victory to have any realistic chance of making the play-offs.
The Yorkshire club are three points behind sixth-placed Fulham and would need a remarkable 14-goal swing in the final round of fixtures.
Jones has delivers a passionate message about Leeds and voiced his pride despite a disappointing end to the season.

Leeds showed immense character to fight back from three goals down against Norwich, but they fell just short of what would have been a dramatic victory.
The club’s supporters have been left bitterly disappointed this campaign after looking a certain bet for the play-offs during most of the season.
Monk has enjoyed a brilliant first season at Elland Road and his side were at the top-end for the majority.
However, a dramatic dip of form recently has seen them slide out of the top-six places and they are now guaranteed a seventh-placed finish.
