Leeds fans react on Twitter to Pedraza display against Wolves
By Harry Sykes
Alfonso Pedraza was named in the Leeds starting XI for their 1-0 Championship defeat to Wolves on Monday – and fans on Twitter were critical of his display.
The Spanish winger played 72 minutes of the Elland Road encounter before he was replaced by Souleymane Doukara.
It was Pedraza’s seventh start in eight league games as manager Monk continued to demonstrate his faith in the January loan signing from Villarreal.
But Pedraza failed to make much of an impact as Leeds slumped to a damaging defeat that put a major dent in their play-off hopes.
Supporters of the club are aware that Pedraza has scored only one goal – and not supplied a single assist – for Leeds, although some claimed on social media he caused problems against Wolves.

Others said he was invisible and did not deserve to be on the pitch for such a crucial league match.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Today – fans subdued, team very nervy, Pedraza isn’t good enough, Bridcutt is far too negative, win 3 and we’re in the play offs #lufc

Not a fan of Doukara but we seemed to win loads when he played.
Pedraza not so much….though clearly the better player. #lufc

Think if Wood doesn’t get chances not enough, how many efforts on goal a game from the likes of, Roofe, Pedraza etc not enough #lufc

Pedraza isn’t in the game. No width in the team and game is congested in the middle. #lufc

Per sofascore, Pedraza had a 7.0 match rating when he went off for Douk when Roofe had a 5.8, how Roofe stays on here I don’t know #lufc
