Leeds United were knocked out of the EFL Cup at the fourth round stage after losing 3-1 against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, and Whites fans weren’t impressed with striker Pawel Cibicki’s performance.
The 23-year-old was handed just his second appearance – having started the win against Burnley in the previous round – for the club following his summer move from Malmo, but the centre-forward failed to stake his claim for a regular spot in Thomas Christiansen’s side after struggling to make an impact against Premier League opposition.
While Pablo Hernandez had given the Yorkshire outfit the lead, goals from Kelechi Iheanacho, Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez saw them fail to reach the quarter-finals of the competition and they will now concentrate on the Championship promotion race.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on Cibicki’s showing via social media, and while some described it as “useless”, others “don’t know what he brings to the team”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
One I forgot to mention in my thoroughly gripping analysis… what on earth does Cibicki do? https://t.co/dZKfUH9x4S

Not seen anything of Cibicki yet myself. Seems a panic big to me offering little to the squad? Is he really bad?

Cibicki and Jansson easily worst players on the pitch https://t.co/Q8xISX6dCL

Shot was too bad either, people being overly harsh on him, only 19 without much experience in first team football, Cibicki did nothing

Struggled to get in the game. Hardly anything exciting when he got on the ball.

Grot has potential – one for the future. Cibicki is just awful. #lufc

The fact I forgot about Cibicki speaks volumes. Also totally anonymous in my view. #lufc
Also Roofe isn't a wide man. https://t.co/pzxDtRtfWf

The signing of Cibicki puzzles me. I don't see what he brings to the team. #lufc
