Lots of Leeds United fans have been talking about a claim regarding Kalvin Phillips that emerged on social media recently.
Dimitar Berbatov has recently spoken about Phillips, saying that he would like to see the Englishman sign for Manchester United, following his performances at Euro 2020 for Gareth Southgate’s side. Berbatov described Phillips as one of the best players of the tournament and he seemed sure that offers will come in for him this summer.
Will Phillips ever leave Leeds?
This claim was relayed on Twitter by TalkSport and many Leeds fans were left fuming by what the former Bulgarian striker had to say about Phillips.
What did Leeds fans make of Berbatov’s comments?
“1. He’s a Leeds lad, he knows the history and rivalry there’s no way on earth is he crossing to the dark side of the Pennines! 2. Why the hell would he leave best coach in world in Bielsa to be trained by Ole!!!!“
“Here we go again things they do for bites and listening figures.”
“Have a day off will you.”
These Leeds fans are clearly not pleased about Berbatov’s comments and don’t believe that Phillips will join Man United.
Phillips is a product of the Leeds youth academy and he’s been with the club throughout their journey back into the Premier League. He’s also got deep connections with the club, and has become a regular for them over the last few campaigns.
Because of all that, it would be a surprise to see Phillips leave Leeds, especially for the club’s arch-rivals, Man United.
