Leeds fans slaughter 23-year-old for his woeful performance against Reading
By Amir Mir
Hadi Sacko started for Leeds during their 1-0 defeat at Reading – and fans on Twitter have slaughtered the winger for his woeful performance.
The 23-year-old played 60 minutes at the Madejski Stadium as Garry Monk’s side dropped valuable points in the race for promotion.
Royals striker Yann Kermorgant fired the home team ahead after 21 minutes with the away side producing a poor display in the first half.
After the break, they did pick things up, but they were unable to find the back of the net as the Whites slumped to a damaging defeat.
The result has a big bearing on the table because it means Leeds drop down to fifth in the table with Jaap Stam’s side moving into fourth.

Supporters on Twitter were asking when the last time Sacko performed for the club as they questioned his place in the side.
One fan felt that he was a passenger against Reading and Monk needs to drop the Frenchman from the starting XI.
Another supporter believes January signing Mo Barrow should be selected ahead of Sacko who has been poor for a number of months.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Sacko has pretty much been a passsnger today. Needs a breather from the side and an arm round his shoulder. #LUFC

Doubt it Sacko would start for any other side in the top half of this division. #lufc

Over the course of the season, Sacko has played 38 games in all competitions for Monk’s side, scoring two goals and supplying four assists.
His last goal for the club came during the 4-1 at Preston North End in December, whilst he last provided an assist against Wolves in October.
Nonetheless, Monk will now prepare his side for a tough away trip to Brentford on Tuesday night.
