Gjanni Alioski has suggested that he has found it funny seeing what the Leeds fans have been tweeting about him recently, in comments reported by Leeds Live.

Alioski is one of a number of players to enjoy a considerable turnaround under Marcelo Bielsa. His form during his first season at Elland Road was mixed, and it appeared that it was going to be a similar campaign for the Macedonia international as his performances dipped following a brilliant start.

 

However, the switch to left-back has made all the difference for Alioski. He has been one of Leeds' most in-form players in the last few months, and he is now being lauded by the supporters on social media most weeks, with his unlimited reserves of energy ensuring that he is on his way to becoming a cult-hero at Elland Road.

And Alioski admitted that he is enjoying reading what the fans are saying about him when he was asked if he was reading the messages on Twitter.

"I see they write about the Duracell bunny, or I’m still running. It’s funny! I take it in a positive sense. I know I run too much sometimes, but I have to do it," he said, as reported by Leeds Live.

It says a lot about Alioski's form that Barry Douglas has struggled for game-time since his return from injury. Leeds are yet to see the best of Douglas, but he was arguably the Championship's best in his position last season.

It has been a remarkable run of form from Alioski, who has provided four goals and four assists in the Championship in the 11 games since he dropped into that full-back role, including the final goal in the stunning 4-0 win against West Brom last time out.
