Former Leeds United star Ross McCormack is set to captain Fulham in the game against his former club today.
McCormack departed Elland Road for a huge £11 million transfer fee in the summer, with debates over whether the player himself pushed for a move or whether he was forced out by owner Massimo Cellino still raging among the Leeds fan base.
The Scotland international was captain of Leeds for the second half of last season, and rewarded former manager Brian McDermott for his faith in him by scoring 29 goals over the course of the season.
McCormack did not, however, seem particularly keen to stay after McDermott’s sacking and the appointment of Dave Hockaday, who lasted six games as Leeds manager.
He will now captain his new side against his old, and it will be interesting to see what sort of reception he receives from fans who, only six months ago, lauded him as a hero.
McCormack skippers Fulham: Kiraly; Grimmer, Bodurov, Hutchinson, Stafylidis; Christensen, Fofana, Hyndman; Ruiz; Rodallega, McCormack #lufc
