Leeds fans concerned about defensive issues

Leeds ramped up their pre-season preparations with the first leg of their tour of Australia on Wednesday night as the Whites suffered a 4-0 defeat.

The performance at both ends of the pitch failed to live up to much as Patrick Bamford missed a simple opportunity before they were also carved open defensively.

Leeds started the game with a defensive pairing of both Gaetano Berardi and Liam Cooper but it didn’t go well as United put Marcelo Bielsa’s side to the sword.

After the game, there was a heated reaction from Leeds supporters who were all essentially calling for the same thing, new defenders.

A host of supporters launched a tirade of comments slamming both the club and the centre-backs who started. One fan claimed that Leeds desperately needed a new centre-half whilst another hoped they never saw Berardi and Cooper play for them again.

A further supporter wanted the club to open their eyes, labelling the situation as embarrassing.

Leeds only conceded the third-fewest goals in the league last season but after losing Pontus Jansson could struggle unless they sign a new defender.

Cooper played in as many as 38 matches throughout 2018/19 but Berardi only featured 15 times.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
