'Needs a sit down' - Leeds fans demand first teamer is axed for clash v Brentford

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to demand that Ronaldo Vieira is axed for the clash against Brentford at Elland Road on Saturday.
Vieira, 19, has been a regular feature for the Whites this season but after his poor performance against Derby on Wednesday night, fans have had enough and want to see the midfielder dropped to the bench.
The England Under-20s international has made 22 appearances in all competitions for the first-team this season, scoring one goal and supplying two assists.
The early part of his season was plagued with injury that troubled him throughout the summer break and into the first few months of Thomas Christiansen’s reign in charge.
When Paul Heckingbottom was called on to replace Christiansen when the Dane was sacked earlier this month, the ex-Barnsley manager instantly dropped Vieira to the bench for his first two matches.
The central midfielder was an unused sub against Sheffield United and Bristol City but the first teamer was thrown into the starting 11 at Derby earlier this week.
After failing to impress, Leeds fans on Twitter now want him to be axed, with many saying that they would prefer to have Kalvin Phillips replace him.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
