Charlie Taylor praises Leeds United’s support

Charlie Taylor was named Leeds United’s Player of the Month.

Speaking to the Leeds United website, Charlie Taylor praised the famous Elland Road support following the news that he was named Player of the Month for September.

Taylor said: “The fans have been brilliant with me. I know what it is like to be a Leeds fan. They go everywhere and show us brilliant support. There were 6,000 at Milton Keynes and it was great to come out of the tunnel and see all those fans. It was an incredible feeling. Everyone at the club appreciates that support. It is such a big help to us.”

Taylor has undoubtedly been Leeds’ best player this season, playing all 10 games the Whites have appeared in this season.

He has improved impressively since last season, when he was struggling to get in the first-team consistently, and has now established himself as a key part of Uwe Rosler’s set-up.

The pleasing side of Taylor’s development is the fact that the Leeds support have always stood behind him, and it could be thanks to them that he is starting to realise his full potential.

Rather than getting on his back, the Leeds fans supported him through his struggles with form - normal for any young player starting to feature in the first-team - and both Taylor and the fans are starting to reap the rewards after a number of impressive displays.

Hopefully Taylor repays that faith in the fans by staying with Leeds for many years to come, rather than looking for an exit from Elland Road at the earliest possible opportunity.
