Steve Morison was on target for Leeds United against Charlton Athletic at The Valley in the Championship on Saturday.

Leeds United striker Steve Morison has admitted to BBC Radio Leeds that he sees himself as “an average footballer”.

The Welshman made the comments following the Whites’ Championship clash against Charlton Athletic away from home at The Valley on Saturday.

The 31-year-old scored his first goal for Leeds this season, but he was down to earth in a refreshingly honest interview after the game.

"I would class myself as an average footballer but if you have a team around you, it works," Morison told BBC Radio Leeds.

Morison was speaking about the current situation at West Yorkshire outfit, who are struggling for form and for points at the moment.

According to BBC Sport, no fewer than six Leeds players withdrew themselves from the squad for the trip to Charlton, citing injuries as the reason.

Morison, though, had no such problem, and it is quite refreshing to see him make it clear how he sees himself as a footballer.

The 31-year-old is not one of the best strikers in the Championship and has struggled for playing time at Leeds this season.

Having just scored a goal, the former Norwich City star would have been exuberant, but he remained honest to himself and did not claim to be in public what he is not.
