A number of Leeds United fans have been left angry after journalist Adrian Durham claimed that Kalvin Phillips should have moved to Manchester United this summer.
Over the past few months, there has been plenty of talk linking the English midfielder with a move to the Red Devils. However, no deal ever came to pass during the past transfer market.
He said: “I think the time for Kalvin Phillips, and as much as I am a Leeds sympathiser, the time for him to move on was this summer.
“He’s had an incredible tournament, he’s done all he can at Leeds United. They’re not going to get better, in my opinion.
“I may be proved wrong by Bielsa, but I don’t think they’re going to get better, so the time was to move on. Now there’s a big fuss about how he can’t go to Man United and all that is holding him back.”
The story was shared on Twitter and it did not go down very well with the club’s fanbase.
Here’s what these Leeds fans said…
“Talk rubbish station again.”
It’s clear to see these fans have absolutely no time for the idea that Durham proposes. To be fair to them, Phillips has been a regular star in the England team over the recent past, and he only missed out on the last few games due to injury.
Should Leeds rush Raphinha back for their next game?
If his goal is to stay in the Three Lions setup, he seems more than capable of maintaining that while still at Leeds.
