Leeds United left-back Barry Douglas has refused to compare his current club with former employers Wolverhampton Wanderers, claiming he's been asked "a hundred times".

In response, he instead hailed the current state of affairs at Elland Road, saying what is happening at present is "special and unique", and adding the atmosphere in the dressing room is top notch.

 

Douglas was one of Wolves’ star performers as they won the Championship title last season after joining from Konyaspor in Turkey, recording an impressive 14 assists and also weighing in with five goals of his own in the league (Transfermarkt).

In the summer, the Whites secured his services and so far he is doing well in his quest to secure promotion to the Premier League for a second successive campaign, with the club third in what seems to have emerged as a four-horse race for the title.

When asked by LUTV about the parallels between the two clubs, Douglas was however hesitant to make overt comparisons, and is quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying: "It’s different teams, you know and I’ve heard this question a hundred times... but you can’t compare.

"What we’ve got this season is special and unique. The spirit we’ve got with the boys in the dressing room is something that you rarely come by in your career. So it’s a special time and hopefully we can create special memories."

Douglas has made 22 appearances - all in the Championship - this season for Marcelo Bielsa's side, keeping up his impressive assist tally with four so far (Transfermarkt).
