'Doesn't deserve his place' - Leeds fans blast decision to start senior player v Brentford

By Danny Wright

Leeds United fans on Twitter have blasted Thomas Christiansen’s decision to start Luke Ayling against Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday.

Ayling, 26, has kept his spot in the Whites starting line-up for their Championship fixture this weekend, as confirmed on the Leeds official Twitter account ahead of kick-off.

Many believe that that senior player has been in a turgid run of form and most want to see him axed from the line-up, with Gaetano Berardi switching from the left-back role into a more natural spot for him on the right side of defence.

Christiansen has regularly played Ayling this season, handing him starts in every single Championship fixture which he has completed 90 minutes of every time.

However many believe that it is time for someone else to have a chance in the side.

Here is a selection of their tweets:


Ayling has made 19 appearances across all competitions for the Whites this season and is one of few players to have featured in all Champions and League Cup games.

He may be in need of a rest given that, but Elland Road fans may not be so forgiving, given the run of form that the team are currently in.

Ahead of the clash with Brentford, Leeds have lost five of their last six Championship fixtures.

In other Leeds United news, Gary Neville has claimed why the Whites struggle in the transfer market.
