Leeds United striker Steve Morison explained the importance of the club’s fans in a frank interview with BBC Radio Leeds.
Morison joked as he questioned the sanity of some of the club’s supporters, considering current events at Elland Road, but praised them for their support at a time when he had started to question his own ability.
“I was a big part of that team, which got us out of danger – You sometimes you have to question yourself but they have been amazing – You have to question the sanity of some of them, but they turn out and continue to support the team,” said the striker.
Morison’s struggles in terms of scoring goals this season have been well documented, but he got a vital strike over the weekend with a volley in the game against Charlton.
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to prevent Leeds from falling to another defeat, as the club’s manager Neil Redfearn looks for a way to stop a recent blip in form for the side.
Leeds fans have been forced to endure a lot of adversity in the past, and at present, but they are a set of supporters who will always turn out to support their team on a weekly basis.
Morison would have been low on confidence, but he was backed by fans during a difficult stage in his career when weaker sets of supporters may have turned their back on him.
Hopefully his goal over the weekend will give him the confidence to fire in the side’s last two games and all parties can end on a high note.
