Reported Leeds United target Joe Bryan scored as Bristol City recorded a famous 2-1 win against Manchester United at Ashton Gate on Wednesday night as they reached the semi-finals of the EFL Cup, and Whites fans were quick to have their say on the left-sided player’s performance.
HITC reported during the summer that the Yorkshire outfit were keen to sign the 24-year-old to replace outgoing left-back Charlie Taylor, but a move never materialised and they eventually brought in Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on loan from Manchester United instead.
However, the 20-year-old has struggled for game time and Gaetano Berardi has largely been playing out of position there in recent weeks.
Bryan scored a sensational goal against the Red Devils and impressed at both ends of the pitch, and Leeds supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on his display.
It was clear to see that some many were tinged with regret with one describing the decision not to follow up on the versatile left-sided player as a “bad move”, while another said the club “missed a trick by not getting Bryan from Bristol City in the summer”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
