FOOTBALL: Rodolph Austin 'shock' at being made captain of Leeds United

Reggae Boy midfielder Rodolph Austin says he was ‘blown away’ when manager Brian McDermott asked him to be the captain of English League Championship team Leeds United.

The Jamaican skippered the side for the first time since his appointment in Sunday's 0-0 draw at Leicester City.

Austin says he was shocked because he didn't know the club had so much respect for him.

The 28-year-old joined the Elland Road club from Norwegian Tippeligaen side SK Brann last summer for an undisclosed fee and made 38 appearances in his debut season in England.

Having missed the first two games of the season through suspension he was happy to have helped the side continue their unbeaten start to the season.
