Leeds United: Fans slam Rodrigo’s performance against Liverpool

Image for Leeds United: Fans slam Rodrigo’s performance against Liverpool

Leeds United fans have been reacting to the performance of Rodrigo during their game against Liverpool in the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men have certainly made a slow start to the season, coming into the game having failed to pick up a win in their first three games in the Premier League and things weren’t going to get any easier for them as they took on a Liverpool side that were unbeaten to start the year.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

It wasn’t the best of performances from Leeds United all-round, with Liverpool dominating for large portions of the game and barely giving the home side a sniff at breaking them down as they had plenty more shots and possession against their opponents (via WhoScored) as the game ended 3-0.

However things could have gone better for them if they had taken what few chances they had, with the Spaniard, who is valued at £16.2 million (as per Transfermarkt), himself guilty of missing a good chance when the score was still 0-0. That miss among other factors meant that his performance was slated by supporters online:

“I’ve had enough of Rodrigo in midfield. Goes missing and when he gets something it’s nothing. Doesn’t track his man either. Therefore getting overran in midfield”

“Rodrigo already frustrating unfortunately”
“Been coming. Getting overloaded in central midfield. Rodrigo offers nothing”
#lufc Rodrigo looks knackered already – what does he do in trainng? James will be on soon.”
“Rodrigo is playing awful”
“I think I’m done defending Rodrigo now”

Did Leeds have a good transfer window?





There’s still a long way to go this season, so there’s plenty of time for him to pick up his form moving forward, hopefully sooner rather than later.
