The Spaniard, who made the move from Huesca in the summer of 2017, believes United's support is relatively unmatched after visiting top flight grounds during his time at the club.

Saiz has been a key figure under Marcelo Bielsa this campaign following a difficult second half of last season under former boss Paul Heckingbottom.

"I went to other stadiums, in the Premier League, and with big teams, I saw big stadiums and these big clubs don’t have the fans we have," Saiz said during his pre-Blackburn press conference.

"To tell the truth, I feel I am lucky because I’m in a big, beautiful city. What I said before about the fans, I feel loved and I feel gratitude towards them. When you walk down the streets of Leeds and you see the love of the fans, you feel an important player."
