Former Leeds United captain Ross McCormack has sent out a message to the club’s fans, telling them that he will be back at Elland Road in the future.
McCormack departed Leeds for Fulham in the summer, joining the London club for a staggering £11 million.
While his time with Fulham has not been a complete success, the Scotland international did captain his new team at Leeds’ ground on Saturday as they won 1-0 against his former side.
Leeds struggled to impress against their recently relegated opposition, and carved out very few chances.
This has put Leeds in a precarious position.
They sit 19th in the Championship, and could be dragged into a relegation battle if they do not improve their form over the Christmas break.
McCormack did, however, give Leeds fans a boost at the weekend, speaking to the Yorkshire Post after the game and suggesting that he would return to Leeds in the future.
Asked about the jeers he received on Saturday, McCormack said: “It didn’t hurt. I expected it for the way I left. The way I left wasn’t the best.
“It would have been nice to come back and for it be like old times but that was never going to happen. It’s sad because personally I had a good season last season but that’s the way it was going to be. At the end I walked around and applauded the fans and the vast majority were great.
“I happened to be the one who someone came in and paid big money for and let’s be honest, you can’t turn that down. I can’t and the club can’t. That’s football. But even after the way I left, the club still means a lot to me. They gave me a chance when it wasn’t happening for me at Cardiff. It’s a special place and as I said when I left, I’ll always be a fan.
“Whether as a player you never know but definitely later on in life, I’ll be back.”
