Leeds United suffered their third successive defeat on the road in the Championship as they were beaten 3-0 by Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Sunday, and Whites fans weren’t impressed with Eunan O’Kane’s performance.
The midfielder missed the midweek defeat against Cardiff City because of illness but he retook his place in the side against the Owls, replacing Mateusz Klich in the centre of the park.
However, it was a disappointing day for the Republic of Ireland international and his teammates and the 27-year-old rounded off a poor display with a weak clearance that was fired home by Wednesday’s Kieran Lee for Carlos Carvalhal’s side’s third goal.
Leeds United supporters were quick to have their say on his showing via social media, and while some described him as “easily the worst player on the pitch”, others said he was “diabolical”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

O'Kane couldn't have passed a better ball for Lee to score Wednesday's third if he'd accepted a bung before the game to do so #lufc

Missed Coops today, and who stole O'Kane and replaced him with a large lump of poo 💩 #lufc

The clearance for the third by O'Kane was full on embarrassing, trying to pass the ball out there #lufc

O'Kane easily the worst player on the pitch but he'll get a pass from the fans, Phillips will still get a hammering though 🙄 #LUFC

O'kane and Philips have both bin diabolical today, neither should start next game!! What does Vieira need to do to get a start #lufc

O'Kane capped off a shocker with a perfect assist! #lufc

This should be 6/7. An absolutely pathetic performance. O’Kane and Phillips in particular, shambles. #lufc
