Duberry ignores boos and tells Leeds fans some home truths - David Hopps

Copy from Football Unlimited of 27/03/2006.

Michael Duberry deserved this moment. All the bile, boos and twisted morality he has endured from a despicable minority of Leeds United supporters could not have been answered more emphatically as he masterminded the Stoke City resistance that dented Leeds' chances of automatic promotion to the Premiership.

"You grass your mates to save yourself," was the sour chant from the Kop, referring to Duberry's willingness to testify in court against his team-mate Jonathan Woodgate over a street attack on an Asian student.

Woodgate was a classy central defender for Leeds; Duberry, so often, was comically error prone, at £4.5m one of the most profligate buys in Leeds' race towards destruction. But Duberry was defiant on his return, subduing the striker Rob Hulse and marshalling a stubborn Stoke side.
