The Potters lost to Leeds 3-1 away from home at Elland Road in the Championship last weekend.
The West Yorkshire outfit were the better team in the match and deservedly picked up all three points from the encounter.
Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool striker Crouch featured in the match, and the Englishman was impressed with the performance of Leeds.
Crouch wrote in The Daily Mail: “Elland Road was bouncing and the atmosphere was brilliant. Full credit to Leeds because they didn't let us settle for a minute.
“They were a young team who charged around and nobody offered complaints about the result. We deserved to lose.”
Leeds fans should be proud to hear Crouch’s comments, as they underline just how dominating Marce Bielsa’s side were against the Potters.
Stoke have a good team and were playing in the Premier League last season, and it was quite something of the Whites to beat them with ease.
Perhaps it is a sign of what’s to come for Leeds, who have not featured in the Premier League since 2004 and will be aiming to finish in the Championship playoffs.
Leeds will take on Derby County in the Championship this evening.
