Kalvin Phillips has played a key role in Leeds United’s unbeaten start to the season. Since making his debut for the Whites in 2015, Phillips has fulfilled various roles in midfield under different coaches but new manager Marcelo Bielsa seems to have found the perfect role for him to make the most impact.
The 22-year-old has been employed as a holding midfielder and has become a pivotal cog in Bielsa’s machine. Whether it’s shielding the defense or dropping back and playing as a third centre-back when the full-backs bomb forward, Phillips has been winning plaudits for his performances so far.
His strong performances on the field notwithstanding, Phillips proved he’s a class act off it too when he went on to surprise a Leeds fan on her birthday.
The birthday girl could hardly believe her eyes after being greeted at the door by the Leeds ace, who also presented her with a jersey. It was a lovely gesture by Phillips and it looks like he’s well on his way to becoming a fan-favourite at Elland Road this season.
The moment will surely be cherished forever by the lucky fan. It was also captured on camera so do check it out:
Happy birthday Maisy Ramsell xxxx
