Hadi Sacko: This is what I will do to become a bona fide Leeds star
By Emma Sanders
Leeds winger Hadi Sacko has vowed to take his goal to the next level by scoring and creating more goals.
Speaking with Radio Yorkshire, Sacko outlined his targets for the coming weeks after making a bright start to his Elland Road career.
The 22 year-old has settled in well after agreeing a season-long switch from Sporting Lisbon this summer.
He has featured in 12 matches for Garry Monk’s side, 10 of which he has started, and has scored one goal and provided two assists.
However, the Leeds winger wants to produce more goals to go alongside his impressive performances.

“I want to score more, it’s normal – and more assists. If you are working [hard] in training the statistics will be better for me,” Sacko told Radio Yorkshire.
The young Frenchman was struggling to get game time with Sporting Lisbon, often featuring for their B team.
Sacko, who began his career at Bordeaux, joined Sporting Lisbon in 2014 but has yet to make any first team appearances for the Portuguese outfit.
He has made 11 substitute league appearances at Bordeaux but his form with Leeds seems to have finally ignited his career.
Should he improve even further, he will no doubt become one of the club’s best additions this season and has already made a strong claim.
