'This had me screaming' - Leeds United fans in awe after 'unbelievable' Joe Rodon footage emerges

Leeds United fans are in awe of an “unbelievable” block from Joe Rodon in their 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough on Saturday (2 December).

An action-packed clash at Elland Road saw all the goals scored in the first half with Daniel James, Crysencio Summerville and Joe Piroe all netting for the Whites.

Michael Carrick’s side nearly notched an equaliser in the second half from a chaotic passage of play after Middlesbrough hit the post, but the Welshman’s subsequent lunging block on Morgan Rogers’ attempt saved their blushes.

His teammates recognised his excellence and quickly went over to support him after Rodon was left on the deck following the block.

Fans have taken to social media to hail the centre-back’s bravery, and some are now more than convinced that Leeds should make his loan from Tottenham permanent.

This supporter praised the “beast” and hoped that Rodon’s countryman Ethan Ampadu would “keep nagging him” to stay at Elland Road after pleading with him on Instagram.

One fan already rates Rodon higher than a former on-loan defensive star Ben White.

One fan feels that with Rodon, and a few other additions, the Whites would be all set to win the Premier League.

This supporter was more excited with Rodon’s block than any of Leeds’ goals.

This fan has been doing his maths and claims, following this block, the 26-year-old has single-handedly won Leeds six points from last-ditch efforts.

Some supporters begged Rodon to never leave the club.

This supporter couldn’t keep his eyes off Rodon’s “heroic” block.
