Leeds United have got off to a flying start under Marcelo Bielsa’s reign, notching up a 3-1 win against Stoke City on the opening day, followed up by a 4-1 demolition of Frank Lampard’s Derby County.
The high-pressing attacking style that characterises Bielsa has clearly been adopted by the players as the club looks to return to the top-flight after a 14 year absence.
Despite bringing in five new faces to Elland Road this summer, including a big-money move for striker Patrick Bamford, the only signing to start both opening games has been Barry Douglas.
The former Wolves left-back, who signed for a reported £3million, has impressed in both matches and registered an assist in his club debut against Stoke.
The impressive defender posted a tweet after the win on Saturday in which he praised the fans and and his teammates.
Leeds supporters responded to the tweet and they were full of praise for the new signing, and here’s a selection of what they’ve had to say.
Cult hero two games in😍
