Leeds United fans on Twitter are hoping that a mysterious tweet posted by Marcelo Bielsa’s translator means that Izzy Brown will play a part in the playoffs.
Izzy “The Sniper” Brown ????

Salim Lamrani has worked closely with the Yorkshire club’s manager all year, and on Thursday afternoon he posted a picture of the midfielder captioned “Izzy ‘The Sniper’ Brown”.
Brown has only played one game for Leeds so far this season, yet that hasn’t stopped fans from clamouring for him to feature in their most crucial game up to this point.
The Chelsea loanee is the only member of the Whites’ squad who has been promoted through the Championship playoffs before, so perhaps Bielsa has opted to draft him in due to his experience.
The midfielder has endured an injury-plagued season, but there is still time for him to become a hero at Elland Road.
It remains to be seen as to whether or not Brown will feature on Sunday, but this tweet could be a sign that he is in line for a return.
Here’s what Leeds fans have been saying on Twitter…
I hope this is a cryptic message telling us he’s actually going to get a game! ?

Please ask Marcelo to give this guy a game. Just 20 mins off the bench will do, just to prove he still exists ?

We’ve had the spy. Now it’s time to send in the sniper.
