'He's a great guy': Rodrigo says there's a player at Leeds who's always so cheerful and helps everyone out

Leeds United forward Rodrigo has praised Kalvin Phillips for his positive attitude and willingness to help his teammates out.

The Whites ace was speaking on the FIFA Vs. show on Sky Sports alongside Elland Road teammate Jack Harrison.

The 26-year-old hails from Leeds and came through the ranks at the club to become one of their figureheads.

Last year, Phillips also wowed at international level, helping England reach the Euro 2020 final.

The Leeds talisman has sadly endured a difficult season, having spent three months out due to a hamstring injury.

In his absence, the Whites struggled in the league, and remain battling relegation.

However, Phillips is now back at just the perfect time, with Jesse Marsch’s side enjoying an upturn in form.

On FIFA Vs., Both Rodrigo and Harrison correctly guessed that Phillips has the highest physicality stat at Leeds (82).

When the host asked them how important he was for club and country, Rodrigo replied: “He’s a positive leader, in my opinion.

“Always in a good mood, always tries to help. Even this year with his bad injury, he’s still happy, tries to help everyone in this difficult season we’re going through.

“He’s a great guy and deserves all that’s good in his professional career and personal life.”

In a further boost for Leeds, a Daily Mail report has just emerged claiming Phillips would reject a summer move to Manchester United.

He’s Leeds through and through, and such a move wouldn’t go down well amongst the Elland Road faithful – so he’s apparently unwilling to do it.
