Leeds United: Fans wash their hands of Ian Poveda following struggles on loan

|

Leeds United fans have been commenting on Ian Poveda and his future at the club following his performances out on loan.

Having initially been brought in from Manchester City in the January window of 2020, Poveda has found it incredibly hard to make a name for himself at the club, making just three starts under Marcelo Bielsa in his time at Elland Road.

Who was Bielsa's first competitive game as Leeds manager against?

This summer, in an attempt to aid his development, the 21-year-old was sent on a season-long loan to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, however, things haven’t been great for him there either, making only four appearances – two of which have been starts.

His time at Ewood Park was surmised in an article by Leeds Live, where it was emphasised that he has ‘struggled’ to get minutes.

This article was relayed to fans on the Leeds Insider Facebook page via MOTLeedsNews, where they asked fans if he had a future at Elland Road:

Will Poveda ever be a regular at Leeds?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Seems like these fans have already made their mind up on him, but whether or not Bielsa will agree with them is another matter.
