Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to some comments from Doncaster manager Grant McCann regarding Leeds youngster Mallik Wilks.

As is so often the case with young players at big clubs, Wilks is yet to make a league appearance for Leeds.

The Leeds-born 19 year-old is still waiting for his chance Elland Road, but has been fairly promising on his loan spells.

After scoring three times with Accrington Stanley and failing to find the net in a brief spell with Grimsby Town, the  6ft tall attacker joined Doncaster Rovers this summer, where he has grabbed three goals in eight league games.

Despite his red-hot start to the season though, McCann does not think he will ever break through at Leeds.

“My personal opinion is he will not ever get a chance at Leeds. I think that they will strengthen again in January and they are strong up there (in attack), with the boy Tyler Roberts. It is going to be difficult for Mallik,” the Doncaster boss said.

“Him and his agent need to decide whether he wants to stay at Leeds and extend his contract or Mallik wants to go and sample the Football League.”


While it’s good to see the youngster is making an impression at his loan club, bashing his chances of making it at Elland Road doesn’t really seem like the right way to go about getting what you want.

Lots of fans have been reacting to the comments, and it’s fair to say they’re not too impressed. You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
