Leeds United: Fans react to clip of Diego Llorente training for Spain

Image for Leeds United: Fans react to clip of Diego Llorente training for Spain

Many fans have been reacting to some footage of defender Diego Llorente whilst on duty.

The Spaniard, who signed for the club last summer in an £18m deal, hasn’t had the best time when it comes to playing time this season, only making six starts in a campaign, but he has certainly made the most of his opportunities when he has played. He’s currently averaging 2.4 tackles, 1.3 interceptions and 1.4 aerial duels wins on a per-game basis, according to WhoScored.

But it looks as if he’s pretty nifty in attack as well, as this clip from him in shows, as he tucks a neat finish into the top corner, even factoring in for a bobble from an errand cone. And it was enough to get plenty of Leeds fans pretty enthusiastic, with some cheekily suggesting that he could start up front for them this weekend against Sheffield United:

“Best CB in the league”

“Put him up front on Saturday”
“You’ve got lad. @Patrick_Bamford”
“Did somebody say 2 up top against Sheffield?
“Look how happy he is… Bless his little cotton socks.”
“Get ready Sheff Utd”

Has Llorente been a bad signing for Leeds?





Now we know what he’s capable of, let’s wait to see if he can do it during a game at some point.
