Leeds United fans were showing their appreciation for Jean-Kevin Augustin after the new signing commented on the Elland Road atmosphere.
After attending Tuesday night’s comeback victory over Millwall, the attacker claimed he was very impressed with the noise made by the supporters, claiming that it makes you ‘want to die for the club’ (via Phil Hay). Following the game against the Lions, the former AS Monaco man posted a video of the fans in full voice during the game, saying it was a special night for him (via Jean-Kevin Augustin).
One fan commented his thoughts on the centre-forward’s status at the club:
Cult figure already

Following his move from Bundesliga outfit Red Bull Leipzig, Augustin may not feature in the Yorkshire side’s weekend fixture against Wigan Athletic despite Marcelo Bielsa claiming he was physically ready. Fans were left showing love for the France youth international after his comments on playing for the club as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
