Liam Cooper responds to Leeds fan on Twitter

Leeds United East Stand

Lewis Cook won Football League Young Player of the Year last night.

A Leeds United fan has apologised to Liam Cooper on Twitter after labelling most of his team-mates as "losers".

Cooper last night tweeted a congratulatory message to team-mate Lewis Cook after the 19-year-old midfielder scooped the Football League's Young Player of the Year award, edging out the likes of Moussa Dembele and Rico Henry to win the gong.

But the supporter in question commented, in a tweet which has since been deleted, that Cook would be leaving behind his 'loser' colleagues at Elland Road in favour of joining a Premier League club in the near future.

Cooper took exception to the message and responded.

But the fan was quick to erase the tweet and swiftly apologised, adding that he would be in attendance for the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers tomorrow night.

On the pitch, things have looked brighter for Leeds than they have in recent weeks. They host Wolves on Tuesday aiming for a third successive victory, following 3-2 wins at home to Reading and away to Birmingham over the last week.
