'Definitely': Phil Foden now makes interesting claim about Elland Road and Leeds United fans
Foden was asked what it was like to play at Elland Road and said: “It can be scary! Definitely. The feel so on top of you, always shouting and throwing paper at me last time!
“I enjoy those occasions, playing against big teams like Leeds, and the atmospheres they create. It’s good for the Premier League to have atmospheres like this.”
New signing Brenden Aaronson commented before he joined the club that he was impressed by the atmosphere at Leeds’ home ground.
Foden makes ‘scary’ Elland Road claim
Considering Foden was four years old when Leeds were relegated from the Premier League back in 2004, the club have certainly made an impression of the youngster since returning to the top flight.
Leeds will be hoping for a change of fortunes against Man City when they face off this season, having lost 11-0 on aggregate after their two league meetings last season.
Jesse Marsch has putting his own stamp on his Leeds side after taking over from Marcelo Bielsa midway through last season.
Although he still talks about the Argentinian in training, his high energy style certainly encourages the Leeds crowd to get behind his squad.
Leeds fans are well known for their passion for the club, breaking the attendance record for an under-23s game last season.
If Leeds can maintain the flying start they’ve made this season, they can rely on an electric atmosphere at Elland Road for every game, and who knows where that might take them at the end of the campaign.
