Cooper will be delighted with these words from his teammates and he will be looking forward to another 150 games with the Whites.
Leeds are having a very good season and Cooper will be hoping to lead them into the Premier League next season.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men are currently second in the league table, two points behind Norwich City. It will be interesting to see if they can go all the way and win the Championship now.
