White And Diouf Appreciate

Description: Leeds born Aidan White a Midfield product of the United Youth Academy and the Senegalese Forward El Hadji Diouf show their support to the Leeds United faithful after the referee blows his full time whistle. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Barnsley at Elland road on the 6th October, 2012. Both Aidan and El Hadji played the full game for Leeds against the South Yorkshire outfit.

Loiner and Leeds fan Aidan White came through the youth system at Elland Road after joining the academy in 2002. It was manager Gary McAllister who gave him his first first team debut when at the age of 16 he started for Leeds in the Football League Cup game against Crystal Palace on the 26th August, 2008. Aidan received a standing ovation for his efforts after he was substituted and he was soon in the action again seven days later after he started for Leeds in the first round of the Football League Trophy against Bradford City. Another impressive performance beyond his years prompted manager McAllister to give Aidan his first League start for Leeds which came in a 2-0 win over Carlisle United on the 20th September, 2008. Further strong performances from White in the season 2008-09 earned the Loiner a contract at Elland Road which lasts until June 2012.

The United manager Neil Warnock signed El Hadji Diouf the Senegalese international for the Whites on the 9th August, 2012 on a non-contract basis from Doncaster Rovers. Diouf is a controversial figure in the game and came to Elland Road carrying more than his fare share of baggage, the United manager himself referred to Diouf as being 'lower than a sewer rat' after an incident at Ewood Park which saw Jamie Mackie stretchered off with multiple fractures to his leg. The fans at Elland Road were initially split on the decision to sign the Senegal forward but despite that contention he will always get the faithful's support while he is giving 100% in a White shirt. Diouf made his debut appearance for Leeds coming on as substitute in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012.

Leeds United: Kenny, Peltier, Pearce, Lees, White, Byram, Austin, Brown, Tonge, Diouf, Becchio.
Subs: Norris for Tonge, Gray for Becchio.
