Leeds United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest footage to emerge of Whites goalkeeper Illan Meslier. 

This comes after Leeds fan @LewisDeighton17 shared a post on his Twitter page that contained a video (originally posted by @SamBirdyy) of Meslier pulling off a nice turn in his penalty box during France U21s’ recent 2-1 defeat against Netherlands U21s in the Euro U21 Championship.

Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

This post then quickly grabbed the attention of a lot of Leeds fans, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this footage.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to this footage of Meslier?

That is amazing!!!! #LUFC”


“It’s the distribution after well, he’s gonna be top top tier”






That’s our man #ALAW”


“That boy is crazy and also Leeds”


“That’s our No 1”


Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Leeds fans were delighted with this move from Meslier during his latest international appearance.

Given how the shot-stopper managed to earn himself a decent overall season rating of 6.91/10 for his performances throughout the 2020/21 campaign, placing him in the top 10 highest-rated Leeds players this season according to WhoScored, it’s understandable why these Leeds fans are so impressed with the Frenchman.

Do you think Meslier could become one of the best goalkeepers in Europe?





However, with Leeds managing to concede 54 goals in the Premier League this season, more than any other team in the top half of the table, Meslier still has some room to improve, in our view.
