Leeds fans are furious they missed out on Mitrović

Leeds fans are furious their side didn’t do more to fix their goal drought during the January transfer window, and particularly for missing out on Aleksandar Mitrović.

For many Leeds fans, many of the problems at their club were summed up by a 14 second period in the second half of the 2-0 defeat to Fulham.

24 year-old Caleb Ekuban was put through on goal with the score at 1-0, only to fire directly into the keeper. Within 14 seconds, the hosts went down the other end and doubled their lead, with a fine counter-attacking move finished clinically by January signing Aleksandar Mitrović.

You’d be hard pushed to find a set of fans more infuriated by their club’s transfer strategy than Leeds, and Tuesday’s defeat showed exactly why.

Mitrović was available on loan in January, and has scored eight times in nine starts for Fulham. Leeds signed their own striker in January – 19 year-old Tyler Roberts, who is yet to play for the club due to a shin injury.

Leeds’ knack of signing young, unproven players like Roberts and Ekuban is hurting them massively, and fans are fuming with their January business.
