The comments were picked up by MOTLeedsNews and then relayed to fans by the Leeds Insider Facebook page for them to react to, where it was the mention of Rodrigo that seemed to spark a lot of the debate, as many fans thought that he should go, with many feeling he hasn’t been up to scratch since he arrived:
