LUFC Schmeichel - Leeds are bigger than City

LUFC Schmeichel - Leeds are bigger than City

Leeds United goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is hoping to help lead Leeds back into the Premier League, where he believes the fans belong.

Schmeichel as been impressed with the fans since his arrival at Elland Road and believes that the club is much bigger than that of his former club Manchester City in terms of fan base.

Speaking in the Daily Star, Schmeichel said, "City may be the richest club in the world but in terms of the fan base, Leeds is a bigger club.
"There`s something about this place which makes it special. It certainly feels like a Premier League club. Of course, it has great history and tradition, but it is the fans which really make this club.
"Earlier this season at Burnley, we were 2-0 down but came back to win 3-2 and the noise from behind my goal was really phenomenal. I`ve never known anything like it."

Leeds once again leads the way in terms of average attendances this season outside the Premier League.

Over 27,000 on average have gone through the turnstiles at Elland Road this season and the away support continues to fill grounds around the country.

Leeds have sold every away allocation they have received since relegation to League One in 2007.

This season alone, over 6,000 fans have travelled to Coventry and Barnsley in the Championship and they sold their 9,000 allocation for the FA Cup trip to Arsenal with twenty minutes of going on sale.
