'Gash', 'Weak link' - Leeds fans demand senior player is axed v Brentford

By Richard Parks
Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to call for Liam Cooper to be axed from the starting XI for Saturday’s Championship match against Brentford on Saturday.
The United skipper was recalled to the starting XI in midweek for the 2-2 draw at Derby County after serving a four-match suspension.
Cooper was reinstated immediately into the centre of defence alongside Pontus Jansson as on-loan Everton player Matthew Pennington dropped down to the bench.
Leeds fans have taken to social media to criticise Cooper’s comeback performance at Pride Park, with many claiming he was at fault in the build-up to both of Derby’s goals on Wednesday night.
Supporters have called for Pennington to be recalled to the starting XI ahead of Cooper, who is variously described as “gash” and a “weak link”.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

 

United are 11th in the league ahead of Saturday’s 3pm kick-off, eight points adrift of the final play-off position.
