Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react to Hadi Sacko’s performance in the defeat to Ipswich on Saturday – and the majority were not impressed with the winger.
Sacko, 23, was called into action after 29 minutes when he came off the bench to replace the injured Pawel Cibicki, however the Frenchman did little to prove to Thomas Christiansen that he can be a long-term solution should the ex-Malmo winger be ruled out for an extended period.
Leeds fell to a terrible defeat at Portmand Road when Bersant Celina scored a second-half goal against the 10-men, who had seen Eunan O’Kane sent off for a headbutt after 37 minutes.
Sacko has not had many chances to impress this season since he signed a permanent deal at Elland Road, and it seems that if the fans had their way, he would not be within a shout any time soon either.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
What I don’t like is playing being criticised as not pulling their weight even when they are giving it their all, ability is one thing but you can’t question some of the players attitudes and effort I.e Sacko, not his fault he gets picked is it

Happily look each and everyone of Haido Sacko's family in the eyes and tell them how useless he is #lufc

Negatives : Nobody to put all the chances away.
Sacko stealing a wage as a footballer
Phillips looks like he wants to be elsewhere@eunan10 cost us
Positives: Nothing could stop their goal
Plenty of chances created
Fight and passion after the sending off#lufc

didn't actually think Sacko was terrible, but am clearly in the minority. Thought Roofe and Berardi played well #lufc.

Been following #lufc over 30 years, and have never seen a player like Hadi Sacko. Make of that what you will.

Nice to see sacko still hasn't learnt to cross a ball all the time in the world just hit it across goal but instead lofts it up wasted opportunity #lufc

Sacko has not started a single Championship fixture this season and his outing against Ipswich was his longest in the league since Christiansen took charge at Elland Road.
The former Sporting CP attacker has made 12 appearances in all competitions for the Whites this term, scoring one goal in the process which came against Burnley in the League Cup.
In other Leeds United news, the Whites are second-favourites to sign this Premier League-winning forward.
