Leeds United fans react as Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips are named in Championship Team of the Year

The Whites have been in good form this season and the influential pair have been rewarded for their efforts.

Leeds United dropped out of the Championship automatic promotion places at the weekend following defeat to Birmingham City.

Sheffield United won their game at Preston and those results ensured the Blades returned to second in the division.

The race looks set to go down to the wire and Leeds can still look back on their season with fondness.

Marcelo Bielsa has the Whites playing a stunning brand of football and the future looks extremely bright for the club.

Some recognition was given to Leeds at the EFL awards which took place last night.

Defender Liam Cooper and midfielder Kalvin Phillips were both named in the Championship Team of the Year for 2018/19.

It was a double celebration for Cooper who was also named in the EFL Team of the Year.

The duo have been in fine form this season for the Whites.

Phillips has filled in at centre-back this season for Bielsa’s team but he has pulled the strings with aplomb when called upon in midfield.

After news emerged on Twitter of the duo’s inclusion in the Championship Team of the Year, fans were quick to praise their star men.
