Leeds fans react as Vieira makes Serie A debut

Ronaldo Vieira left Leeds United for Sampdoria earlier this summer, with the midfielder signing a long-term contract with the Italian giants.

The 20-year-old scored once in 32 appearances for Leeds last term, but struggled for consistency, and it was not much of a surprise when he departed ahead of the new season.

The 5ft 10in tall Vieira made his Serie A debut for Sampdoria on Sunday night, with the youngster appearing as a late substitute in his team’s 3-0 win over Napoli.

It was a huge moment for the England Under-21 international, who will be keen to prove that he has what it takes to operate in a major European league.

Vieira posted a tweet on Sunday night after making his debut, and the Leeds fans were out in force with messages for the midfielder.

A number claimed that Leeds will be made to regret selling Vieira, and the majority insisted that the 5ft 10in ace would always be welcome back at Elland Road.
