Leeds United captain Liam Cooper on why Fulham win will remain memorable

Leeds United captain Liam Cooper expressed his gratitude over the team's effort as they secured a 4-3 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Cooper reiterated that game meant a lot to him more than people win know and the honour of being a leader in a team that is finding its footing back in the Premier League.

“I’ll never forget this game,” said Cooper.

“It’s unbelievable what the boys have achieved for the club.

“We’re devastated our fans can’t be here to share it with us, but this is what everyone dreams of.

“I’m delighted to captain this amazing club and long may it continue.”

The 29-year-old who is also the first Leeds captain to win promotion to topflight football since Gordon Strachan in 1990 believes there is still more work to be done and that the team should not be complacent going forward.

“The mentality always changes, when you are 4-1 up and flying and then concede two goals, it can get a bit tetchy, but I thought the lads stuck in at the end and we defended well when we had to.

“The goals were sloppy to concede on our behalf and we will go back to the training ground next week, analyse them and put things right.”
