Three biggest disappointments for Leeds this season
COMMENT by Amir Mir
It has been a fairytale season for Leeds this season which could result in them earning promotion to the Premier League.
Despite all the success from Garry Monk and his side, there still have been some disappointing factors relating to the Yorkshire club.
Here, Football Insider looks at the three Leeds players that have been the biggest disappointments this season despite the overall success of their side.
The 22-year-old joined the club in the summer on loan from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon. At first, his frightening pace on the wing and ability to beat defenders was pleasing on the eye. But as the season has progressed, he has become frustrating due to his lack of intelligence to pass the ball to players who are in a more advanced position than him. Furthermore, only four assists is proof of his poor contribution to the team despite playing regularly.

Perhaps the most inconsistent and disappointing player for Monk this season. He has played various attacking roles, but despite glimpses of magic he has not lived up to expectations. Just like Sacko, Doukara frustrates fans with his inability to link with teammates and make full use of attacking plays.
Defender Cooper has been used sporadically this season and for the majority of the time he has played, he has not impressed. Cooper was also part of the side that was knocked out of the FA Cup against non-league side Sutton. For the majority of the time, when the regular centre-back pairing of Kyle Bartley and Pontus Jansson have either been injured or suspended, Cooper has stepped in. It is fair to say he struggled on a number of occasions to fill their boots.
