'Worst footballer I have ever seen in a Leeds shirt' - Fans have huge doubts over £500K signing

By Richard Parks

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to express their doubts about Caleb Ekuban ahead of their team’s Championship clash against Fulham on Tuesday night.

The striker 24, scored his first league goal for United on Friday in the 2-1 win against Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road.

It came in Ekuban’s 15th appearance for Leeds, and 14th in the Championship, since he joined last summer from Chievo for a fee reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post to be £500,000.

The Ghanian-born spearhead has started each of the club’s last three league matches despite his lack of success in front of goal, with manager Paul Heckingbottom appearing to put great store into his mobility and work rate.

However, Leeds supporters are unconvinced by the calibre of the player and believe his enthusiasm alone is not enough to succeed at such an elite club.
