Supporters of Leeds United have recently flocked to some footage of Sam Greenwood which was shared on Twitter by the club.

On Monday, the young striker started for the Whites’ under-23s in a game against fellow Premier League outfit Burnley (per Leeds United).

The game against the Clarets came the day after the youngster featured for Marcelo Bielsa’s side during the tie in which they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Crawley Town (per Transfermarkt).

In the game against Burnley, though, the 18-year-old Englishman opened the scoring for the Whites as he bagged after 10 minutes (per FlashScore).

For the goal, Greenwood hammered the ball in from just inside the Clarets’ 18-yard box after it had ricocheted around the area.

After this was shared on Twitter by the club, lots of Leeds fans flocked to it to air their responses.

“Think its time to either start using him off the bench or send him on loan. We saw yesterday academy football does not translate to being able to mix it in mens football.”

Against the Red Devils on Sunday, Greenwood featured for 32 minutes after being brought on as a second-half substitute for Leif Davis.

For his role in the clash, the youngster was awarded a 5/10 performance rating by Leeds Live as it was ‘not the debut he would have wanted’ and he ‘barely seemed to get a touch’.
