Image for Leeds United: Fans react to footage of Ben White

Leeds United fans have been reacting to footage that has emerged of former defender Ben White.

The Arsenal man certainly had a memorable and successful time at Elland Road during his loan spell in 2019/20, playing every minute of every league game as Leeds were promoted back to the Premier League whilst also picking up the club’s Young Player of the Season award and being selected in the PFA Championship Team of the Season.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

And those days at the club have clearly had an effect on him, because speaking during a recent feature for Arsenal’s media channel, White revealed that his favourite stadium was Elland Road, noting: “Obviously I played there two years ago. That was probably my first experience of a full stadium and a lively crowd.”

Footage of this was picked up by @BoydGraphics and then relayed by @LewisDeighton17 for fans to react to, and it certainly generated some interesting responses, with some of them using it to take a shot at the Gunners:

“He’s Leeds and he knows he’s Leeds”

“Class”
“Hilarious!”
“Pahahaha! Can’t blame the lad. Wishes he was still with us”
“Love that from Ben”
“What a guy”

Do you think Ben White will ever play for Leeds again?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It certainly is one way to endear yourself to one of your former clubs, and will no doubt help him receive a warm welcome from the fans on his return there some day.
