Leeds fans are absolutely furious despite Saturday’s huge win, after news broke that Victor Orta will stay at the club this summer.
It’s been an up and down season for Leeds fans. “Up and down” in this instance literally meaning up then down, down and further down.
After a good run of form before Christmas, fans have watched on in despair as their side’s playoff push has completely evaporated.
With pressure mounting on manager Paul Heckingbottom, his side did him proud on Saturday with a 2-1 win over Barnsley.
Heckingbottom moved to Elland Road from Barnsley in February, so he would have certainly enjoyed the win that came courtesy of goals from Tom Pearce and Ezgjan Alioski.
It’s fair to say fans might not have enjoyed today so much though if they saw the news about Victor Orta.
Orta has taken plenty of stick for his awful recruitment since coming to Elland Road, and Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post reported before the match that reports linking Orta with a move to Deportivo are wide of the mark.

The ‘Orta in’ brigade are great value today. ‘Who cares if we get relegated to league 1, it’s alright, our youth teams are really good!’ Embarrassing! #lufc
