'Narcissistic', 'Awful' - Leeds fans blast Alioski for tweet about loss v Derby
By Danny Wright
Leeds United fans have not responded well to a tweet from Ezgjan Alioski when he posted a video of his personal highlights from the loss to Derby on Tuesday night.
Alioski, 25, started the clash at Elland Road, but could not do enough to stop his side from succumbing to a fifth defeat in their last six Championship outings as Derby came from behind to win 2-1.
On Wednesday, the Macedonia international shared a highlight reel of himself from the game, accompanied with a message about how the game would have panned out different if Leeds were awarded a penalty before the break.
“It could’ve been so different against Derby after that incident late in the 1st half. Now, let’s focus on Brentford away,” he said on his personal Twitter account.

One supporter even claimed that Alioski’s tweet was “a little narcissistic”.

We lost … why would you post highlights of yourself? This is about the team not individuals @realrj80

Alioski has made 16 appearances across all competitions since signing for Leeds in the summer from Swiss side Lugano.
He has scored one goal and supplied three assists in the process but many are pointing the finger at him for being a large part in the recent poor run of results by not offering enough up front.
