Leeds United fans were 'psychopaths!' claims Manchester United legend Paul Scholes

Have your say

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has revealed Leeds United fans were "absolutely mental" during his visits to Elland Road throughout his career.

Scholes, who was speaking as a pundit for beIN SPORTS following England's 2-0 victory over Sweden at the World Cup, revealed that he never felt intimidated during his career as a footballer.

The former England and Red Devils midfielder was discussing which team the Three Lions may prefer to face in the semi-finals believing that if Russia had progressed instead of Croatia the Moscow atmosphere wouldn't have been an issue for Gareth Southgate's men.

Who have Leeds United's Championship rivals signed so far?

When quizzed over whether he had ever felt the pressure of an away crowd Scholes simply replied "no", before turning to fellow pundit and former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson to back up his point with a smile.

"We loved going to places where everyone is baying for blood," he continued.

"It's brilliant. You'd go to Leeds, I know it's on a domestic point of view... psychopaths! Absolutely mental fans.

"But there's nothing better than going there and winning a game."
