Noel Whelan had some savage criticism for two Leeds players after their latest defeat in the Championship.

Leeds went down 1-0 to Aston Villa on Friday night – a result that was better than a lot of people had expected – but Whelan was disgusted by what he saw from two Leeds players, who didn’t seem to care or want to play.

Talking on BBC Radio Leeds, Whelan saved most of his anger for substitutes Jay-Roy Grot and Pierre-Michel Lasogga, who he called, “Diabolical, lazy, unprofessional.”

“And that starts with the warm-up, that’s unacceptable, I don’t want to see that.

“I don’t want the young lads seeing that, I wouldn’t put them on the bench again, they shouldn’t play for Leeds again in my opinion. I’d give it to the young lads with passion and desire.”

Leeds fans wholeheartedly agree with Whelan and one said that his passion is what is needed at Elland Road.

Another said that he could understand Lasogga, who was probably leaving at the end of the season, but was perplexed by youngster Grot who is at the start of his career.

Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to Whelan’s explosive comments:
