Liam Cooper makes clear his Leeds plans

Liam Cooper says he’s happy to stay and fight for his place at Leeds United.

Pascal Struijk, Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Charlie Cresswell are all younger centre-backs in the squad with real plans about staying put at Leeds. That’s proper competition for Cooper.

“I just want to improve, keep improving,” he told Leeds-Live. “I still think I’m learning every single day. I still feel fit, I still feel strong and 30’s no age.

“I still believe I can play for the next five or six years at least. I look after myself. We’ve got great facilities, we’ve got great people around us, the doctors, the physios, everyone always helping us to be in tip-top condition.

“I feel amazing and on the pitch, I just want to help the lads out, try to get the best out of every single player, whether you’re a young lad, whether you’re an experienced lad. Drag each other to try to be successful.”
