Leeds United face Burnley in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Turf Moor on Tuesday night, and Whites fans already appear to be divided on the reception former striker Chris Wood should get in Lancashire.
The Clarets signed the New Zealand international for a club-record £15m fee last month, with the 25-year-old asking to be left out of the Championship fixture against Sunderland beforehand as the move to the Premier League edged closer.
Wood has since scored two goals for Sean Dyche’s men having netted 30 in all competitions for the Yorkshire outfit last term, and he could have a quick reunion with his former employers in the League Cup.
Thomas Christiansen’s side haven’t particularly missed the centre-forward though, and they currently sit top of the Championship standings despite their first defeat of the campaign against Millwall on Saturday.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on facing Wood and the reception he should get via social media, and they were divided with some saying they ‘hope he doesn’t get booed’, while others suggest that he should having “refused to play”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Hope people don't boo Chris Wood tonight. He wanted to play Premier League football and you can't grudge against him for that #lufc

I'm all for players having ambition but not refusing to play. End of the day he downed tools and should be remembered for that. Same as CT

Refused to play, leaving to play in the prem is fine by me but the moment you refuse to play it is a different story

As long as you're a Leeds player you play. Simple as that as far as I'm concerned, disrespectful to travelling fans and unprofessional imo.

Is anybody seriously going to boo Chris Wood tonight? Behead Charlie Taylor in the centre circle but don't boo Wood #lufc
