Leeds fans urge Garry Monk to axe 23-year-old v Brentford

By Matt Farr

Leeds fans have urged manager Garry Monk to axe attacker Hadi Sacko from his starting eleven against Brentford on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has started Leeds’ last two Championship outings, but after a disappointing display in the 1-0 defeat to Reading at the weekend, fans on Twitter have called for his head.

The majority of Leeds fans argued that Sacko has been out-of-sorts for quite some time, having failed to contribute either a goal or an assist from his last 11 Championship appearances.

Ahead of an important trip to Brentford on Tuesday, they called for a more reliable performer to be handed a key role in the starting eleven at Sacko’s expense.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Sacko is currently on loan at the club from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon until the end of the season, but it is abundantly clear he has yet to win over the Leeds fanbase.

Monk will be paying close attention to Sacko over the final few weeks of the season ahead of a potential permanent move for the attacker this summer, but Leeds fan will be expecting much improvement for that to happen.

Leeds were dealt a minor setback to their pursuit of promotion to the Premier League in their defeat to Reading last time out, but they can make amends by beating Brentford in their next outing.

They slipped to fifth in the Championship, but they still have a six-point lead over seventh-placed Sheffield Wednesday.
