Leeds United fans have been reacting to comments made by goalkeeper Kiko Casilla about his future.
A combination of issues off the pitch and the emergence of Illan Meslier, however, meant that he had to forfeit his place in the team to the Frenchman, and with opportunities limited, he was recently sent out on loan to Spanish side Elche CF. Speaking to Spanish outlet AS (via Leeds Live), Casilla spoke about the next steps in his career, hinting that he wouldn’t be too sad if he didn’t play for Leeds United again:
“It is a normal and current option until the end of the season, but when it ends, if all goes well, there would be no problems to continue. My intention is to stay in Spain.”
When the comments were relayed to fans on social media, there didn’t seem to be too much sympathy for the 34-year-old, with fans seemingly happy to see him away from the club:
“Think it is best for all parties that his time at Leeds is over. Think his hefty salary could be better spent.”
