Leeds Utd's Rob Green applauds fans after the match

The Leeds United ace let loose at the Isle of Wight this weekend.

Leeds Utd's Rob Green applauds fans after the match

It has been a tough last four weeks for Leeds United. One victory in their last eight Championship matches put paid to their hopes of finishing in the playoff spots as the Whites ended up seventh.

Then manager Garry Monk shocked the division by handing in his resignation - and then joined Leeds' Championship rivals Middlesbrough to make matters worse.

With that in mind, you could forgive the United playing staff for seeking the ultimate rest and relaxation holiday, on a sun-soaked tropical island where they could drink alcohol out of coconuts and forget about the problems back in Yorkshire.

And some of them might have opted for that type of getaway, but Rob Green might have a different idea of paradise.

Leeds United's Robert Green

The former England international was spotted at the Isle of Wight music festival dressed as Danger Mouse, with a prop bomb in one hand and a can of cider in the other.

Having been a professional goalkeeper for 19 years, the Leeds man is well used to donning a pair of gloves and handling round objects - but not like this.

With an eyepatch on the correct eye and a pair of cardboard ears sticking out of a white beanie, the 37-year-old looked the part in his homemade costume of the popular 1980s cartoon.

Whereever there is danger, he'll be there to save Leeds next season as the Whites look to win promotion back to the Premier League.
