Leeds fans hammer Ezgjan Alioski after awful cameo against Sheffield Wednesday

Having made well over 100 appearances for the club now, Ezgjan Alioski has established himself as a key part of the Leeds United first-team squad. This season has seen Marcelo Bielsa alternate between using him as a left-midfielder and at left-back, with even one game as a right-midfielder too.

Against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon, Alioski found himself on the bench as Leeds looked to strengthen their position at the top of the Championship.

But after being brought on in the second-half for Barry Douglas, the Macedonian delivered a cameo that was as bad as anyone could have imagined.

How many times have Leeds United won the FA Cup?

As per Sofascore, his 6.1 match rating was the worst of any player on the pitch, and when looking at his underlying numbers, it is easy to see why.

He won just one of his five total duels, made no tackles or interceptions, was dribbled past twice, and lost possession nine times. After seeing his performance, Leeds fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the 27-year-old.

A few Leeds fans were particularly critical of his positioning, claiming that his tendencies as a winger seemed to have him go too far up the pitch despite being needed to play at left-back.

A couple of supporters even labelled Alisoki as a “liability” to their team following his performance.

Despite only coming on mid-way through the second half, Alisoki certainly seemed to draw the ire of the Leeds faithful. The 27-year-old effectively made his side worse once he was introduced, the complete opposite of what substitutes are supposed to do. In games going forward, Bielsa may just think twice before opting to bring the Macedonian into the team.

Meanwhile, this Premier League striker could be Patrick Bamford’s ideal back-up.
