Leeds United fans have been waxing lyrical after footage emerged of goalkeeper’s Illan Meslier superb skill during their 1-1 draw against Wolves on Saturday
The 21-year old, who has been Marcelo Bielsa’s first choice No.1 at Elland Road since the 2019-20 campaign, was beaten by Wolves’ Hwang Hee-chan in the 10th minute to open the scoring for the Midlands side during the encounter on Saturday.
However, footage has emerged of the French U-21 international coolly wrong-footing pressing Wolves striker Raul Jimenez after receiving a back-pass from captain Liam Cooper, with Leeds fans also berating the Mexican striker who theatrically threw himself to the ground after Meslier wrong-footed him.
Is Illan Meslier World Class?
What did these Leeds fans make of the video footage?
“Sent for a croque monsieur by @MeslierIllan. Habit forced him to fall over”
“Meslier is class! Best keeper in the country”
“Sent him for a hotdog”
“Siiiii senor, Meslier has put you on the floor”
The draw against Wolves means the Yorkshire side remain 17th in the table, and will be looking to return to winning ways when they visit the league’s bottom side Norwich City, hammered 7-0 by Chelsea on Saturday, next Sunday afternoon at Carrow Road as Bielsa’s side will look to secure a crucial victory and really reignite their season.
