Speaking to Talksport earlier this week, Freeman, whose QPR side travel to Leeds on Saturday, expressed his surprise at the Whites' current league position - four points clear of third-place West Brom in second.
But part of his reasoning, that Leeds' foreign contingent would struggle during England's cold winters, appears somewhat flawed.
"They’ve got some unbelievable talent there," Freeman acknowledged. "But they’ve got quite a lot of foreign players on their books who probably aren’t that experienced when it comes to Championship football.
"You’ve then got a new manager coming in (Marcelo Bielsa), which could have made things hard to adjust too initially.
"It’s lovely winning in August and September when the sun is out, but I thought to myself it will be interesting to see how they play in November and December time when you’re playing a thousand games a week.
"I did have an inkling they’d drop off a bit, but they’re still in a very strong position and one of the best teams in the league for sure."
Indeed, of the 24 players used by Leeds in this season's Championship, only seven hail from outside of the United Kingdom - all of which arrived last season.
That is three fewer than the amount of overseas players used by QPR throughout the same period - although one of those, Ryan Manning, is Irish.
And these Leeds followers have been quick to point out as much on Twitter...
What ‘large influx of foreign players’? QPR had more non-British players in their starting XI last weekend than Leeds did. Leeds also made six summer signings for the first-team, all of which had experience of playing in this division LAST SEASON. https://t.co/yqK9ESWPje— Tom Carnduff (@TomC_22) December 6, 2018

Our starting line up— The Only Place For Us (@TheOnlyPlace4Us) December 7, 2018
BPF (Northern Irish)
Dallas (NI) Cooper (Scottish) Jansson (Swedish) Douglas (Scottish)
Hernandez (Spanish) Klich (Polish) Forshaw (English) Alioski (Macedonian)
That's 4 out of 11 foreign players.
Strange interview.. we brought in Bamford, Baker, Blackman, Douglas, Brown and Harrison and have added in players like BPF, Clarke, Shackleton and Roberts... not a single one of these is not British. We also have Ayling, Forshaw, Phillips, Roofe and Cooper who are all English— Smalesy (@shez_dictates) December 7, 2018
Aye, those lads from Sweden, Switzerland, Finland and Poland will have no idea what's him them once the UK winter takes hold.— Mark Thompson (@SkyNewsThompson) December 6, 2018
Sorry? All those bloody foreigners! Like Bamford, Brown, Jack Harrison, Baker and Douglas!!!— Jon Wharton (@jonny1lufc) December 7, 2018
Well...Luke Freeman, you may want to check your facts before spouting such bolocks!! https://t.co/DacuTxfbYo
James Webster @JDWebster1101: "Ignorant **** is Luke Freeman. Do your research before you comment"
Perhaps the Queens Park Rangers manager, Steve McClaren, who grew up a Leeds fan, will put Freeman right about his comments?
Which of Leeds' foreign contingent could the Whites survive without?
Have something to tell us about this article?
