Brenden Aaronson wants to become Leeds United ‘legend’

Brenden Aaronson is “grateful” to have joined Leeds United and is hopeful of becoming a club legend.

The UMSNT midfielder has been a star performer for the side ever since joining from Austrian club RB Salzburg in the recently concluded transfer window.

The 21-year-old, while talking to the media during an international break as quoted by Yorkshire Evening Post, stated that he is always eager to give his 110 per cent for the team.

“They [Leeds fans] see how much I work and how much I’m willing to work for the team,” he said. “I’ll always give 110% and I think that they liked that.

“I’m really grateful to be at Leeds. I just want to keep getting better and better and become the best player I can be and hopefully be a legend for the club at some point.”

Best signing

Leeds entered the transfer window hoping to sign a lot of players to bolster the squad after an unimpressive campaign last time around where they narrowly managed to escape relegation.

The Whites were successful in bringing six first-team players to Elland Road and the most high-profile one was Aaronson.

The 21-year-old came to the club with a little reputation as fans did not know much about him as he arrived from the Austrian league but in just a few weeks, he has already become one of the Elland Road-faithful’s favourite, largely because of his work rate that is second to none.

Aaronson has already put in a number of important performances for the side including the one against Chelsea where he scored the side’s opening goal as well by forcing a mistake from Édouard Mendy.

Those performances have excited the fans who will be hoping to see the USMNT midfielder produce similar kinds of displays in the matches to come as well.
