Leeds United: Sean Walsh slams Rasmus Kristensen for poor Denmark World Cup outing

Journalist Sean Walsh has slammed Leeds United defender Rasmus Kristensen for his poor display for Denmark at the World Cup. 

In their second group game of the winter tournament – having drawn with Tunisia in their opening match – the Danes fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of reigning champions France.

Indeed, a second-half brace from Kylian Mbappe was enough to seal the win even though Denmark defender Andreas Christensen did manage to initially level the scores.

Although the Danes battled hard for a result, they fell short in the end and it seems as though the Leeds United defender didn’t exactly cover himself in glory.

Indeed, in the player ratings for 90min, Walsh handed Kristensen a 3/10 and wrote: “Provided little support for [Joachim] Andersen and didn’t offer a lot on the front foot.”

His stats on SofaScore don’t make for great reading either. Indeed, Kristensen was dribbled past twice, lost the ball 26 times, won just six of 13 ground duels, gave away one foul and failed with all three attempted crosses.

All in all, a day to forget for the Leeds defender as he struggled to handle some of the world’s best on the biggest stage.

Did you think Rasmus Kristensen played badly?

    Sad to say but this is pretty much his weekly performance, he is so bloody slow getting back into position ( he is never in his position) I don’t understand how he is in the team when we have Ayling or better still Cody Drameh ( best of the three) l can’t understand Marcsh ‘S team selection or his LATE substitution policy. He should not be coaching in the premiership. He did not keep us up last season it was all about timely return from injury of several KEY players

      Drameh best of the three? Give your head a wobble. Mbappe would have had him on toast too. And who are these several KEY players you are speaking about. Please do not say Phillips or Bamford because neither of them improved the team when they came back. Just another Jesse hater it seems

        Kristensen had a poor game as well before the France game. I’ve been to every home game this season and as much as he definitely doesn’t lack desire he’s not a better player than Ayling even at thirty one years old, is very one dimensional and doesn’t offer the attacking options like Ayling. Marsch obviously had a hand in us stopping up but he got a bit lucky in the end and I think Bielsa would probably have kept us up anyway.
