With Leeds United’s success this season, at least one player was going to make the EFL team of the year, so it was obviously going to be... Liam Cooper?
Well done to Liam and Kalvin on making the @SkyBetChamp Team of the Year. Special mention to our captain who also made the overall @EFL 2018/19 team pic.twitter.com/pbjlaVegN7— Leeds United (@LUFC) April 7, 2019
To be fair, Cooper has earned it with his remarkable play this season, although if you poll any Leeds fans as to who the best player on the team was this year, Pablo Hernandez would probably win easily, with Kalvin Phillips, who was in the Championship’s Team of the Season along with Cooper, would probably place second.
Oh well, even if Hernandez did get robbed, and he did, it’s still good to have at least one player on the list.
On to the links.
