Barry Douglas has applauded the Leeds United supporters for their turnout during their pre-season training session in Perth, Australia.

Marcelo Bielsa's side are currently on the other side of the world as they try to prepare in the best possible manner for what will be another gruelling Championship campaign.

 

The Yorkshire outfit will take on bitter rivals Manchester United at Perth's Stadium on Wednesday afternoon in what will no doubt be a fiery encounter.

Nonetheless, Leeds fans will love Douglas' message which was posted on his personal Instagram account where he was paying tribute to the Elland Road faithful.

Left-back Douglas endured an indifferent campaign with Leeds last season despite producing the goods for promoted Wolves the season before last.

He joined Leeds last summer from the Midlands outfit for a fee believed to be in the region of £5 million [Birminghham Live], as he will be hoping he can replicate the form that won him plaudits during his time at Molineux.

If Douglas can do that then it'll help Marcelo Bielsa in many ways because it would add balance to Leeds' backline – winger Ezgjan Alioski played a number of games at left-back last season.

Nonetheless, Leeds have already started pre-season in a positive fashion with wins against York City and Guiseley being put into the bag prior to their trip to Australia.
