Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the fans have been amazing and even took him by surprise during their week-long tour in Devon and Cornwall.
Leeds finished the tour at Torquay last night with in excess of 2,000 Leeds fans making the trip and Warnock commented about the turnout after the game.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “Look at the fans. What can you say about them, for a pre-season friendly, it was amazing.
“I don`t think the new players knew what had hit them. It even took me by surprise – Torquay in midweek!.”
Many Leeds fans have spent the week in the area with around 1,000 fans turning up for the first two pre-season games at Tavistock and Bodmin and a similar amount turning out for an open training session on Tuesday.
Warnock, who lives in the area also joked about how well he had done for the local tourism in the area. “I must have done well for Cornwall`s tourism this week. We have filled all the bed and breakfasts and the pubs,” added Warnock.
Leeds now travel to Norway for a game with Sandefjord on Wednesday night when there will be a large Leeds presence from the Scandinavian based Leeds fans as well as those travelling from around Britain.
