Leeds United goalkeeper Robert Green has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that he has found the club's fans very honest.

Green joined Leeds in the summer transfer window after leaving Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2015-16 season.

The 36-year-old former Norwich City and West Ham United goalkeeper has established himself as the first choice between the posts for the Whites this campaign.

The Englishman has shared his opinion on the Leeds fans, stating that the Elland Road faithful are very honest.

“As a player I think the crowd are very honest with you,” Green told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “If you leave everything on the pitch they’ll stick with you. Most of the time they’ve seen us do that at Elland Road this season. But you can’t fool anyone and as much as we know when we’ve not been at it, they do too.

“There’s always an appreciation of your effort and your performance, provided you perform to a certain level. It’s not like some clubs.

“I’ve played at clubs where you get booed off for winning games. You win a game but you get booed off because you’re not winning in the right way, or something like that.

“I’ve never felt that at Elland Road but there are certain standards. The fact that we’ve been hitting higher standards in the last month is probably proven by the atmosphere.”

Leeds are one of the biggest clubs of England and regularly attract over 20,000 fans to their home matches in the Championship.

The Whites did not start the season well, but they soon got into form and are now in the running for a playoff spot.

The West Yorkshire outfit will take on Wigan Athletic at Elland Road in the Championship on Tuesday evening.

Garry Monk’s side will head into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Derby County away from home at the iPro Stadium in the league.
