The Whites plucked the Scottish winger from Livingston back in 2008 and Snodgrass has since fashioned a very successful career for himself in English football.
The 32-year-old, who left Leeds in 2012 after four successful years, joined West Ham for £10 million from Hull City in January of 2017 [Reuters], and is now a big player for the East Londoners after originally struggling at the Irons.
The Elland Road club turned 100 earlier this week and Snodgrass sent a video message, thanking the club for taking a chance on him as an 'unknown' and how he was blown away to be accepted as one of their own.
Here's how Leeds supporters reacted to Snodgrass's message.
Would love to see him back top player.— Andy Pantling (@AndyPantling) October 17, 2019

Come home Snoddy— Jonathan Aldcroft (@jonny_aldcroft) October 17, 2019
Tremendous player for us. Absolute quality— G U Y S L E Y (@Guysley) October 17, 2019
One of few ex players I would welcome back in a heartbeat, even now.— Luke Hardill (@LukeHardill) October 18, 2019
What we’d do for a winger like @robsnodgrass7 now, different class at this level and league 1, proper winger! That day at Burnley was a top top day!— Conor Stalbow (@cstalbow) October 17, 2019
Fancy coming back pal and playing in number 10 roll behind striker— Robert James (@Robertkas86) October 17, 2019
Snodgrass would still get a game at United, even now.
Marcelo Bielsa might have Helder Costa at his disposal these days, but the Portuguese winger hasn't pulled up any trees in West Yorkshire just yet.
Snodgrass is certainly the better of both wingers right now and who knows, maybe one day he will get a chance to return to his first English club.
