'Makes no sense', Not feeling comfortable' - Leeds fans bemused after star axed v Cardiff

By Russell Edge

Leeds fans have taken to social media to voice their confusion at the exclusion of Pierre Michel Lasogga from the starting XI for their clash against Cardiff.

The German striker, a summer arrival on loan from Hamburg SV, has been in scintillating form for the Whites this season, with three goals in four league appearances.

However he was dropped to the bench by Thomas Christiansen for Tuesday’s clash, despite having netted in his last outing against Ipswich.

The club revealed their starting line up via their official Twitter account:

Fans were quick to note the 25-year-old’s absence from the starting XI, with Kemar Roofe taking his place in the side.

As a result they turned to Twitter to question Christiansen’s decision making, although some had faith he would be able to have an impact from the bench.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

The German forward revealed after the Ipswich clash that his girlfriend had given birth to a baby girl the day before that match, and that he travelled to see the pair after the game.

However his visit was a short one, as he returned back to Yorkshire to ensure that he was available for Tuesday’s clash.
