Leeds fans react hilariously on Twitter as Felix Wiedwald re-joins former club
Leeds goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald has left Elland Road after a hugely disappointing season, and fans have reacted hilariously on Twitter.
Wiedwald arrived for £450k last summer from German club Werder Bremen, but he was dropped twice after a string of disappointing performances.
In the end it was Under-23 keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell who claimed the number one spot, and he’ll be hoping that he can stay there next season under Marcelo Bielsa.
He’ll have one fewer person to contend with after Wiedwald departed, with the 28-year-old returning to former club Eintracht Frankfurt.
The news was confirmed on the official Leeds Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon.

Leeds fans flocked onto Twitter but the majority weren’t there to wish him good luck in the Bundlesliga, with several making the joke about him not catching the plane.
