Leeds fans are mercilessly bashing Pierre-Michel Lasogga, after the striker said he wants to help Hamburg get promoted with his goals.
When Lasogga joined Leeds on loan last summer, fans were elated that they might finally have the goalscorer needed to fire them up into the playoff race.
The big German got off to an electric start, grabbing two goals and two assists in the opening day win against Burton Albion, before netting twice more across the next three games.
The 26 year-old missed part of the winter period with a thigh injury though, and scored just five times in the 21 appearances after the injury.
Lasogga eventually lost his place to Caleb Ekuban and even young Jay-Roy Grot, both of which have taken plenty of flak from fans for their wasteful finishing.
Hamburg were relegated in Lasogga’s absence, but Bundesliga writer Ronan Murphy reports that the German wants to stay with his parent club.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga is expected to stay at relegated Hamburg next season after spending this season on loan at Leeds, telling Bild: "I want this huge club to immediately return. If I can help with their goals, I will gladly stay." #HSV #LUFC

Fans are absolutely crucifying the towering striker, mainly due to his total lack of effort towards the end of the season.

Might help if he learns to run a bit.

He’ll perform great for about half a dozen games then get bored.
