Leeds United: KageyVision urges club to get rid of Kiko Casilla

|

Presenter KageyVision has slammed Leeds United goalkeeper Kiko Casilla and urged the club to get rid of him this summer.

Last season, the 35-year-old was sent out on loan to Spanish club Elche where he played just 14 La Liga games after being dropped midway through the season (via Transfermarkt).

The Spaniard has just one year left on his contract and is expected to leave the Premier League club this summer, but still remains on Leeds‘ books for now.

While talking about the player on the One Leeds Fan Channel, Kagey outlined his feelings for Casilla, slamming him for not being good enough.

He said (51:27): “Let’s take his [issue] – well, it’s not even off the field is it? It happened on the field – but let’s take that aside.

“When you’ve got somebody where Liam Cooper’s nervous about getting clattered from behind each game, get him out of here, man.

“He’s been no good. He hasn’t been any good. You know, and we talk about the play off semi final. He’s a big reason why we lost that game.”

Will Kiko Casilla still be at Leeds when the transfer window shuts?

Yes

Yes

No

No

TIF thoughts on Kiko Casilla and Leeds…

Kagey alludes to an issue with Casilla and that is of course in reference to the ban the player was handed by the Football Association after he was found to have used racist language towards Jonathan Leko during a Championship match against Charlton.

However, the podcaster puts that to one side in his discussion and says that the goalkeeper wouldn’t be good enough for Leeds regardless.

Most notably, he points to the Championship play-off semi final when Casilla’s mix-up with Cooper gifted Derby County an equaliser at Elland Road – which ultimately led to Leeds losing the tie.

Taking it all into account, it’s not hard to see why the Spaniard isn’t wanted at Leeds any longer, at least not by Kagey.
