Sacko, Leeds United fans respond to Sacko £1.7m transfer deal news

Leeds United fans respond to Sacko £1.7m transfer deal news

Early this morning news started to filter through, via Portuguese publication Record, that Leeds United had exercised a £1.7 million purchase option for French youngster Hadi Sacko.

Sacko arrived at Leeds United on a season-long loan from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon, first featuring for the Whites on the club’s pre-season tour of Ireland. It was blatantly obvious from the start that he could move, and move quickly too.

The 23-year-old French youngster made 38 Sky Bet Championship appearances for Leeds United during their 2016/17 campaign – scoring twice and setting up four assists for teammates. His speed on the ball was also evident in the team-leading 67 successful dribbles that he completed last season.

There are elements of the youngster’s game that are frustrating for Leeds supporters, such as his at-times wayward shooting and final ball decision-making, but these are elements of his game that many hope can be coached and honed, making the young speedster somewhat of a bargain buy at £1.7 million.

With this news, Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to air their views on this subject.

Most fans are of the opinion that this is a good move by the club, that bringing in Sacko on a permanent basis for a relatively low price represents good business sense by the club.

The following Leeds fan acknowledges the weaker aspects of Sacko’s game, and draws a salient point about the criticism coming from certain quarters as to where said criticism is levelled.

But the general opinion is that Sacko can ‘do a job’ for Leeds United – views such as those laid out below.
