This round is on Brian

Brian McDermott showed his charitable side during Leeds United’s pre-season friendly against a Slovenian Select XI on Wednesday.


The United boss responded to chants of ‘it’s your round Brian’ by offering a 50 euro note to one of the 300 supporters so that he could buy some of the fans a drink. He said: “I only had 50 euros on me, I’d have given them more if I’d have had it. I felt a bit bad as that was all I had on me. I did it at Reading and maybe they knew that. It could cost me a few quid this season.”

And to make the day even better Leeds won 3-1. What a guy!
