Leeds United: Fans react as Illan Meslier and Ezgjan Alioski reunite

Image for Leeds United: Fans react as Illan Meslier and Ezgjan Alioski reunite

A number of Leeds United fans have reacted online after seeing a picture of Illan Meslier with former teammate Ezgjan Alioski.

The two players are currently on international duty – Meslier with the France under-21 team and Alioski with North Macedonia – and seemed to bump into one another while on their travels.

Having just scored in his nation’s 3-1 win over Iceland, the left-back shared an image of himself catching up with the Leeds goalkeeper on Twitter.

The two presumably were in contact due to the fact that the France youth team will play North Macedonia in their next Euro U21 qualification match.

Do Leeds miss Ezgjan Alioski?





When the image was shared online, a selection of Leeds supporters flocked to the picture.

Here’s what these Leeds fans said


“I never expected to miss this man but I really do.”
“No stop, this makes my heart so full.”
“Very happy to see you both!!”

Alioski played 171 games for Leeds helping them reach the Premier League with his 22 goals and 19 assists. He left this past summer, however, to go and play for Al-Ahli after his contract expired.

Meslier, of course, is still at the club and is very much the number one, having started every Premier League game so far this season.

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?

Judging from all of the comments, it seems that these fans still hold Alioski in good esteem, despite his recent exit.
