Tony Yeboah comments on Leeds' difficult situation, discusses Elland Road support

Leeds United East Stand

Tony Yeboah believes Leeds fans won't give up on their club despite their recent struggles.

Leeds United cult hero Tony Yeboah has told the club's official YouTube channel that he wants the fans to stick by the club, and believes they will.

Yeboah, 49, spent two years at Elland Road, smashing 32 goals in 66 games before moving on to Germany with Hamburg in 1997, and he has remained a fan favourite at Leeds long after his departure.

The Ghanaian striker, who hit some stunning goals during his time at Leeds, has recently been appointed as the club's ambassador for the Leeds United Foundation, bringing him back to the club almost 20 years since his exit.

Today, Yeboah has been speaking to the club's official YouTube account, and spoke about the Leeds fans during his time at the club.

Yeboah called the Leeds fans 'unbelievable', and even though the club have struggled in recent times, he predicts that the fans will always stick by the club regardless.

"The Leeds fans are unbelievable," said Yeboah. "I hope they can still continue to help this club, because now they have a little bit of a difficult situation at the moment, but I know the Leeds fans - they are never going to give up," he added.

With Steve Evans now at the helm, Leeds are looking to get back on track after a poor start to the season under Uwe Rosler, and having won two Championship games in a row, things are looking brighter at Elland Road.

Uncertainty still surrounds the club off the field with owner Massimo Cellino calling the shots, but Yeboah's belief that the Leeds fans will always stick by the club means that even with off-field issues, Leeds will continue to have exceptional support from their huge fanbase - which will always put them at an advantage over their Championship rivals.
