Leeds United suffered their first Championship defeat of the season when they were beaten 1-0 by Millwall at the New Den on Saturday, and Whites fans were particularly unimpressed with Vurnon Anita’s performance.
The summer signing has been playing at left-back in recent weeks and with the league leaders keeping six successive clean sheets, the experienced Dutchman was once again named in the starting line-up for the tough-looking trip to the capital.
However, the Yorkshire outfit struggled to match some of the performances they have shown this term on a tough day in south London and they were unable to respond when Aiden O’Brien scored for the hosts 17 minutes from time.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on Anita’s showing via social media, and while some described it as “dreadful” and “embarrassing”, others believe that he was just the worst of a bad bunch on a disappointing day.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Poor all over the pitch. Different type of game & players bottled it completely. Anita especially poor but no one came out with credit #lufc
