Leeds United fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest comments made by Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa regarding Ezgjan Alioski and his future at the Yorkshire club.
This comes after Leeds journalist Adam Pope shared a post on his Twitter page relaying comments made by Bielsa during his latest press conference ahead of the club’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
On the subject of Alioski, whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season, Bielsa said that he would like the defender to stay at Elland Road if Alioski and the club can agree terms for a new deal.
This post then gathered a lot of replies from Leeds fans who were quick to share their thoughts on the matter.
So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to Bielsa’s comments on Alioski’s future?
“I do hope not.”
“He’s played his part and will be remember forever here. It’s time for him to go he proves week after week he isn’t good enough for us anymore.”
“Sorry, but i’m happy to see him leave.”
“Played a big part but I will be gutted if he stays, lacks a brain and this summer is time to kick on and build not stand still”
“Squad player at best. Need a LB to fill the void. Definitely seeing Costa leaving now”
Leeds signed Alioski back in the 2017 summer transfer window from FC Lugano for £2.25 million.
Since then, the 29-year-old, who is currently valued at £3.6 million, has made 167 appearances for Leeds in which he has managed to score 22 goals and provide 17 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).
Would you like to see Alioski sign a new deal at Leeds?
Looking at the replies to this post, it seems that the majority of these Leeds fans would be happy to see Alioski leave the club during the upcoming summer transfer window and not sign a new deal at Elland Road.
Given how the left-back has only managed to earn himself a fairly uninspiring overall season rating of 6.53/10 for his performances in the Premier League so far this season, it’s easy to see why these Leeds fans think he doesn’t have the quality to continue with the club going forward.
