This comes as Leeds-focused Twitter account All Leeds TV posted a picture of 21-year-old Ian Poveda without a shirt on, which was posted on the player’s Instagram Story, and captioned it: ‘It’s quite clear that all the work and “grind” Poveda put in over the off-season has bulked him up. No wonder he was a popular boy.’
Leeds fans were quick to respond to the tweet with their views on the winger’s ‘off-season’ work…
“Excellent. You could see him doing some heavy lifting on his Instagram posts. He needs that bit of explosive power in his game and it may just take him to the next level.”
“He’s coming back to conquer the PL”
“Someone has photoshopped his head on my body”
“Jack Harrison did the same, went away preseason n worked really hard and has not looked back.”
“Needs to put another 3 foot on and he’ll be dynamite”
“That’s what we call a mini beast”
“Needs to take his chance in pre-season. Big season for him and his development”
Judging by the responses to the tweet, Leeds fans are impressed with the work ethic of the 21-year-old, who is looking in good shape.
Poveda made 14 appearances for Leeds in the Premier League last season, but will undoubtedly be wanting to make more of an impression on Bielsa this season in order to get higher up the pecking order, which can be told by the hard work he continues to put in off the field.
