Ross McCormack: I'll definitely be back at Leeds one day

The Fulham striker is hopeful of returning to Leeds in some capacity later in life - even as a player.

Fulham striker Ross McCormack admits he will 'definitely be back' at Leeds United at some point in his life.

And that promise might even include returning during his playing career, the Scot admits.

McCormack left Leeds for Fulham in a big-money move this summer and returned to Elland Road on Saturday, as Fulham beat his former side 1-0.

But the Cottagers striker admits he is keen on a Leeds return in whatever capacity he can manage further down the line.

"Whether as a player you never know but definitely later on in life, I’ll be back,” McCormack is quoted as saying by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Of the Yorkshire side's current struggles, the Fulham striker was as encouraging as he could be:

“It’s important to try and stick with [boss] Neil [Redfearn]," he explained. "I think people can see that Leeds are playing the right way and playing good football – a lot better football than at times last year, that’s for sure.

“They’re definitely going in the right direction. You can see it with the senior lads like Stevie Warnock who’s getting a new lease of life and really happy."
