Ex-Man City fullback Greg Leigh hopes NAC Breda fans now behind him

Former Manchester City fullback Greg Leigh hopes he's now winning over fans at NAC Breda.

Having been snapped up from Bury last summer, Leigh suffered a slow start to his Eredivisie career.

However, the defender impressed for victory over Vitesse and acknowledged the support and chants of "Leigh, Leigh, Leigh" from NAC fans.

"I heard it, yes. I tried to shut myself off, but I heard it. I cannot deny that it makes you bigger as a player, it is good for your self-confidence," he said.

"I know what it has been like when I have not been able to convince, that is the most important thing for me. The criticism was sometimes justified, I can do better, I know."
