Leeds fans react on Twitter as Antonsson delivers two-goal salvo in first start

By Will Butcher

Leeds fans have expressed their delight on Twitter after their new £2million signing Marcus Antonsson scored a brace during his first Leeds’ start.

The Whites fans took to Twitter to declare they were impressed with the signing of the Swedish striker, who officially become a Leeds player on 28 June.

During Leeds 3-0 win against Shamrock Rovers, the striker found the back of the net early on in the seventh minute with what Leeds’ official website described a ‘calm finish’.

He then doubled his tally early in the second-half, latching onto a deflected cross to head home.

Monk signed Antonsson from Swedish outfit Kalmar FF, with the obvious intention being goals. Leeds only managed to find the back of the net 50 times in 46 games last season.

Fans took to Twitter to declare their happiness to see one of Garry Monk’s new signings already finding his feet in the former Swansea manager’s new look squad.

Leeds ran out as easy winners against Shamrock Rovers, which concludes their short pre-season stay in Ireland. New Zealand captain Chris Wood also found the back of the net, converting a penalty after £3million-man Kemar Roofe was tripped in the box.
