Leeds United have shone under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, sitting at the top of the Championship and boasting a huge chance of finally securing a return to the Premier League for the first time since relegation in 2004.
However, the Peacocks have work to do as a sequence of three consecutive defeats across all competitions has exposed frailties within the squad and another stern test is on the horizon against Derby County on Friday evening.
If Leeds do return to the Premier League, they will have a huge chance of bringing top-tier players to Elland Road and many fans believe that academy graduate James Milner could return to the side where he started his career.
Milner, who left the club following their relegation 15 years ago, has earned a vast amount of experience with Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Liverpool – so he would have plenty to offer the squad.
After celebrating his 500th Premier League match recently, Milner took to social media to celebrate and earned a variety of responses from Leeds fans. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
That’s great. Now come home. #lufc
