The whole situation regarding Pierre-Michel Lasogga is pretty amazing and more has today been revealed by the player and head-coach Thomas Christiansen. The pair did the pre-game presser ahead of the Cardiff City game and Christiansen explained that the only person who knew Lasogga’s daughter had been born before the game, was Lasogga.

The game on Saturday was like any other for most of the fans and players but it certainly wasn’t for German striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga. He found out on Friday night via his mum that his daughter had been born back home in Germany as he picked her up at the airport. To make the situation even more crazy Lasogga then kept that news to himself and played in the game without anyone knowing he was a father at the club. He played extremely well and netted a superb goal, smashing home in the early stages of the game before finishing up and heading over to Germany to meet the newest member of the Lasogga family.

As people wondered if he would be back for the game at Sheffield Wednesday it was revealed that he would actually be back to do the presser today ahead of the game he will be playing in tomorrow in South Wales. The striker has earned some serious respect for this recent situation and that coincides with the fact that he is playing very well and earning some big respect through his attitude and ability on the park. In terms of the old quote, “side before self every time” this takes it to a new level in the current side. An unbelievable show of commitment from the player in recent days.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
