‘Signing For An Absolute Whopper Of A Club’: Ex Real Madrid Player’s Words Inspired Leeds United Midfield Ace

Leeds United are flying high this season under Marcelo Bielsa and seem to have shaken off the shambles of their darkest days. The influence of the iconic Argentine is incredible towards reclaiming a place among the English elites after 15 years of absence. Although the job is not done yet, their unity and commitment have been exemplary since El Loco’s appointment.

The players are throwing everything to defy the odds and are desperate to leave an impression irrespective of game-time. Adam Forshaw is one such individual who has depicted utmost professionalism and sheer dedication in spite of being in and out of the first-team action throughout the campaign.

An injury misfortune kept him sidelined of late, but the Englishman, now back in action, made his mark once again in a late cameo appearance against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday evening.

The Owls could have spoiled the Whites’ party if Forshaw had not blocked Atdhe Nuhiu’s run inside the box in the closing moments of the match. The big centre-forward would have been clear on goal otherwise and could have had scored an equaliser to snatch a point jeopardising Leeds United’s automatic promotion push.

The passion reflected in his words while sharing his experience at Elland Road via the club’s official website.

The support is incredible and it is by far the biggest club I have played for and will play for. I want to be here for many more years and experience some really good highs with the club and see where it takes us.”

The player told us about the phone call of Jonathan Woodgate before making a reported £4.5m switch from Middlesbrough back in January last year. Leeds were struggling at that time, but the former Real Madrid defender encouraged the move and shared words of appreciation stating  ‘You’re signing for an absolute whopper of a club’.

Woodgate was an integral part of the Whites when they were competing at the top end of the Premier League table as well as Europe. His enthusiasm for Leeds is there for everyone to see even after so many years.

Forshaw, though hugely underrated, seems focused on his goal as well as aspiration of restoring Leeds’ lost pride banking on his colossal presence in the middle of the park. His work ethics, as well as experience, helped the Whites settle down and keep on maintaining the supremacy despite form and fitness woes. The player, nevertheless, would be determined for one final push to wipe out years of agony, disappointment and despair.
