Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has quickly become the face of the Whites during their rise to success under Marcelo Bielsa.

The Yorkshire Pirlo is loved by everyone and has been placed in history in West Yorkshire, being the central figure of a mural near the Docks.

Luke Ayling even visited the new structure on Thursday and was blown away by the art-work of his current teammate.

The artists aren’t stopping with Phillips though.

It was pictured on Thursday that two Leeds legends have joined the midfielder on the wall, with smaller figures either side [WALMOT].

First, it was Albert Johanneson, the winger who became the first black player to feature in an FA Cup final back in 1965.

Joining him at the other side of Phillips was Lucas Radebe.

The chief became an icon at Leeds and is still sung about in the Elland Road stands (when fans are allowed back there, of course).

This is quickly turning into something amazing.

We thought it looked brilliant when it was just Phillips, so to add two legends such as Radebe and Johanneson only makes it better.

Younger fans that won’t know much about the likes of these players will now be pushed into researching these legends and learning more about them and the club.

Johanneson was awarded a Blue Plaque by Leeds Civic Trust last year, and they revealed on their Twitter account earlier that even more could be to come.

Keep your eyes peeled.
