Leeds United are currently in 15th place in the Championship table.
Prutton, who represented Leeds during his playing days, says that the Whites were always considered to be the biggest club in Yorkshire.
However, after their recent demise, they have now become a team which has been associated with turmoil and Prutton feels the situation is difficult to watch.
“Its been tough, because growing up in Yorkshire they were the biggest club,” he said.
“On the other side of it, Leeds United fans have been in a position which they have not been used to, with other teams looking at them – and seeing the turmoil that they have been in.”
Leeds were relegated from the Premier League back in 2004, and they have not been able to return to England’s top-flight.
Many felt that the Whites would bounce back quickly, given the size of the club, but they have struggled to cope with being outside the top division.
Leeds have even had a stint in League One, after financial mismanagement affected their chances of success.
At the moment the Whites are still not looking like the most stable of teams, but they are in 15th place in the Championship table, and they will hope to climb up the standings by the end of the season.
