'He's been atrocious' - Leeds fans destroy midfielder for display against Reading

By Alex Stevens

Ronaldo Vieira started Leeds’s 1-0 Championship defeat to Reading on Saturday – and fans took to Twitter to pan his display.

The midfielder was given the nod to start in central midfield alongside skipper Liam Bridcutt, with Kalvin Phillips and Eunan O’Kane left on the bench.

But Garry Monk’s selection did not pay dividends as Leeds were comprehensively outplayed by home side Reading.

The Yorkshire giants’ seven-match unbeaten run came to an end as they fell to a deserved loss at the Madejski Stadium against their fellow promotion hopefuls.

A superb first-half strike from Yann Kermorgant was enough to secure the three points in a match totally dominated by Jaap Stam’s side.

Leeds supporters took to Twitter to lay into 18-year-old Vieira, who was replaced at Reading after 85 minutes by Kemar Roofe.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Reading’s win has lifted them to fourth in the table as they leapfrog Leeds, who had held that position before kick-off.

Monk’s side have dropped to fifth, although they are only one point adrift of Reading.
