Leeds United fans react as goal-shy Grot joins Twitter

Leeds United fans would be forgiven for being a tad frustrated by Jay-Roy Grot’s failure to find the back of the net.

The 19-year-old has made 13 appearances in all competitions, but only two of them have been from the starting spot.

Eleven of his outings have been in the Championship, but in 137 minutes of action, the forward has struggled to score.

As with all fanbases, it is difficult for some players to win over every supporter, but now Grot has opened himself up to receiving criticism by launching a Twitter account.

The club promoted the teenager’s page on their official feed and the response was mixed.

Some fans were happy to add Grot to the Twitter family, while others felt that he had made a mistake creating an online presence.

Meanwhile, Thomas Christiansen’s side have been celebrating a win following Saturday’s 2-0 triumph over Barnsley.

The club currently reside eighth in the league table, three points adrift of the playoff places.
