Leeds United's Crysencio Summerville describes Elland Road as the 'best atmosphere in England'

Crysencio Summerville believes Elland Road has the 'best atmosphere in England', and credits his inner self confidence for his breakthrough season in the Premier League.

The Dutchman has scored four goals and contributed two assists in 20 appearances for the Whites in the Premier League this term.

Summerville set out on his quest to reach the very top when he switched from Feyenoord to Leeds in 2020, and the 21-year-old believes that his dream is now coming into fruition.

"When I signed for Leeds, I said to my dad: I’m going to be a player people come to the stadium for. That is slowly but surely coming true, but I had to change,” Summerville revealed in an interview with Dutch outlet De Volskrant.

“Leeds has the best atmosphere in England, it’s a really big club. The fans love me, I love the fans. The stadium is always full.

“I don’t regret my choice. I now play against guys I play against in FIFA. Salah, Van Dijk, De Bruyne, Haaland.

“I admire and respect them, but when I play against them I think: Today you are going to do it Cry. You’re the best on the pitch.”
