'We know about it' - Liam Cooper delivers verdict on unhappy Leeds fans

Leeds United captain Liam Cooper has admitted that the squad can feel the hostility when the fans are not happy with the way things are going.

The Whites are currently plummeting down the Championship standings with their season dead and buried with eight games to play.

The initial signs after last summer’s overhaul were good with Thomas Christiansen briefly leading Leeds to the top of the table.

But ever since then it has been layers upon layers of disappointment with just one win in all competitions since Boxing Day.

Cooper, 26, has faced a lot of criticism all season and he has told Leeds’ official website that he and the squad are well aware of their feelings when things are going wrong.

“The fans are honest – they tell you when they like something and we know about it when they are not happy too,” he said.

Football Insider verdict

It’s not been a good season for Leeds fans because the club needs to be at least within the mix of teams who could finish in the play-offs come the end of the campaign. The squad will surely know that and Andrea Radrizzani should know that as well. Leeds showed earlier this season that they had the ability to climb to the top but that has gone completely missing since. Tactics have been changed too often and not enough faith has been shown in certain players. It is going to be a very interesting summer at Elland Road and it would not be a surprise to see a major overhaul.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites must ensure that this major error is only a one-off when they released this Premier League centre-forward.
