A number of Leeds United fans have been left feeling a little concerned after Phil Hay published an article dissecting Junior Firpo’s start to life at the club.
In an article published on The Athletic, Hay spoke about how Alioski was ‘fully indoctrinated’ into Marcelo Bielsa’s system, and therefore, training sessions and matchdays were ‘second nature’ to him.
Having just arrived from Barcelona, Firpo, on the other hand, has had a lot of learning to do. This left Hay to conclude that the former left-back left ‘bigger shoes to fill than anyone realised’.
He shared his thoughts on Twitter and it drew a concerned response from many Leeds supporters.
Here’s what these Leeds fans said…
“I’m sure he’s a nice guy but can’t we just have Allioski back?”
“Generally very poor so far. Watford showed some promise but they were dreadful. Not hopeful.”
Evidently, many of these Leeds fans are yet to be convinced by what they’ve seen from the new man at left-back – it sounds as if they’d much rather still have Alioski with their side.
Was Junior Firpo a poor singing by Leeds?
Even so, Firpo is still in the very early stages of his time at the club, having played just eight games for them so far. Perhaps he just needs a little more time to adapt.
