Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that Luis Sinisterra will be seen as a ‘catalyst’ for Leeds United’s attack this season.
Sinisterra was not fit enough for the bench on the opening day of the Premier League season against Wolverhampton Wanderers when they won 2-1, but four new additions were awarded with full first-team competitive debuts.
When asked if Leeds were to sign another new winger this summer, Jones claimed that over the course of the season, the hope at Leeds is more that Sinisterra will become a catalyst for the Whites, whilst speaking with GiveMeSport.
He said: “I don’t really, no.
“Speaking to people around the situation, I think that Sinisterra will be seen over the course of the season to become that kind of catalyst.”
Do you think Leeds will get relegated this season?
TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments…
Sinisterra was in impressive form for Feyenoord last season, he featured 49 times for the Dutch side, where he scored 23 goals and chipped in with 14 assists along the way, so the Leeds faithful will be hoping that he can replicate this form in England.
It might have been a big loss for Leeds to lose Raphinha, their top scorer last season in the Premier League with 11 goals, but they have reinvested the money back into the side this summer, and Sinisterra might be one of those players that can fill the Brazilian’s boots and hopefully help them have a more successful season this term.
However, the Colombian winger has recently turned 23 years old, so he might take a bit of time to adapt to the Premier League and could be more of a player for the future for Jesse Marsch, rather than have an instant impact.
