Leeds fans urge Christiansen to start summer signing v Fulham

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to urge manager Thomas Christiansen to start summer signing Samu Saiz in Tuesday’s Championship clash against Fulham.

The 26-year-old attacker was handed a start in last Wednesday’s clash against Port Vale in the League Cup, where he managed to bag a hat-trick in front of the Elland Road crowd.

However, he was then pushed back to the bench in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Preston in the league and he was restricted to a 29 minute cameo.

Now, supporters are keen for Saiz to start against Fulham as they aim to continue their unbeaten start under Christiansen.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:


Sauz completed a move from Spanish club Huesca in July after previously being on the books of Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid alongside being capped at Under-19 level for Spain.

He agreed a four-year contract on his move to Leeds and he will be hoping to help the club win promotion back to the Premier League during his time at Elland Road.

But, the club’s immediate focus will be on achieving the victory against Fulham at Elland Road on Tuesday after the London club beat them to a play-off spot in the last campaign.
