While Ben White didn’t feel the need to lavish praise upon himself on Instagram after winning the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award, one of his teammates was more than happy to oblige.
Indeed, Kalvin Phillips couldn’t resist congratulating his teammate after he was given the accolade this week.
The midfielder took a candid shot of the centre-back receiving his award and posted it onto his Instagram story alongside a complimentary caption.
Phillips was over the moon for his teammate, as he stated that the Championship was too easy for him after winning Fans’ Player of the Month at the very first attempt.

Before the start of this campaign, the highest standard White had played at was League One, but he’s taken to his new surroundings like a duck to water.
The 21-year-old still has a lot of developing to do, and if he can continue to improve during his time at Elland Road he could find himself in the Premier League sooner rather than later, whether that be in Yorkshire or back at his parent club.
