A lot of Leeds United fans have been responding to a tweet that was recently posted by The Athletic’s Phil Hay, in which he discussed the fitness of the Whites’ captain Liam Cooper, who left the pitch ‘limping heavily’ in the 72nd minute of Leeds’ 6-2 loss to Manchester United at the weekend. 

The £6.3m-rated centre-back scored one of Leeds’ two goals in this game before his premature departure from the pitch. Cooper had played the full 90 minutes in every league game he’d started this season before he was taken off early in Sunday’s game at Old Trafford. 

In his tweet, Hay revealed that he’s unable to provide an update on Cooper’s status at present and the journalist’s post sharing that he’s yet to hear details on the extent of Cooper’s injury got plenty of Leeds fans talking about the Scotland international. 

So, how did these Leeds United fans react to Hay’s tweet on Cooper?

Plenty of Leeds fans were critical of their captain in response to Hay’s tweet, with some questioning his quality. Meanwhile, one particular Whites supporter shared that they think their club needs to sign a centre-back on loan in January.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

Has Cooper played well this season for Leeds?

YES

YES

NO

NO

All in all, it certainly seems as though Cooper hasn’t exactly managed to set the world alight this season in the view of many Leeds United fans, judging by these replies to this tweet.
