Hadi Sacko created Leeds’ goal in their 1-1 draw against Wigan on Tuesday – but fans on Twitter were underwhelmed by his performance.
The on-loan Sporting Lisbon winger has been a key attacking player for the Yorkshire giants during their improved run of results over the last month.
He supplied his third assist of the season when he crossed for Chris Wood to lash home the opening goal 29 minutes into the Elland Road match against Wigan.
Shaun MacDonald grabbed a stoppage-time equaliser, which meant that Garry Monk’s side remain in 13th in the Championship table.
Fans took to social media to claim that Sacko, who has started 11 of Leeds’ 13 league matches this season, ran out of steam before he was substituted after 66 minutes and replaced by Matt Grimes.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Sacko sub off,? no complaints he looked shattered. Grimes on? Not for me. Wood sub off? Unless 100% injured, poor decision for me. #lufc

It looked to me like sacko had hit a brick wall on 60 mins, no energy. We need like for like subs IMO #lufc

Sacko has no idea what to do once on the edge of the box. He can’t shoot and he normally waits to long to cross the ball #lufc

Sacko best have come off injured, because if that was a tactical sub then I’m baffled #lufc
