No effort: West Brom fans lambast Leko after play-off display

West Brom’s season came to a bitterly disappointing end on Tuesday night as the Baggies promotion dreams were crushed on penalties.

There were a number of poor performances throughout the second leg of their play-off semi-final with Aston Villa, but Jonathan Leko was a player singled out for criticism.

The 20-year-old came off the bench in extra-time to add pace to Albion’s frontline but failed to put in a convincing display. As a result, the Hawthorns faithful slammed the 6 ft winger on Twitter.

One supporter went as far as saying he looked like a disjointed 70-year-old, whilst another claimed Leko didn’t have a brain.

It was a vicious attack on the player who was also ripped into for his effort and further told that he should never wear a West Brom shirt again. Another academy product Rekeem Harper was slated in some tweets too.

Leko burst onto the scene in the Premier League a number of years ago but hasn’t reached the heights expected of him when he was a teenager.

As such, he’s struggled to get first-team football this term, making just seven appearances across all competitions.

Here’s what Albion fans have been saying.
