Leeds United fans have been tearing into Ian Wright after the former Arsenal player commented on Jean-Kevin Augustin.
The Premier League legend claimed that to get a player ‘up to speed’, you have to give him starts as he blasted Marcelo Bielsa for his comments about leaving the 22-year-old out last weekend (via BBC 5 Live Sport). Augustin was left out of the squad entirely as the Whites went down 1-0 at home to Wigan Athletic with the Argentine claiming the centre-forward needs to adapt to the Yorkshire outfit’s style of play (via Phil Hay).
It proved to be another day of missed chances as the side missed a plethora of good opportunities to beat the relegation candidates. Jack Harrison had one of the best chances as he managed to skew a shot wide from just two yards out (via BBC). Fans have been showing their support for the former Olympique Marseille coach as they took to Twitter to hit out at Wright. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
remind who Ian Wright has managed again?

Tbh I couldn’t care less what Ian says , he must have been aware of the process before he came .. I doubt it’s gna change so just got to hope it’s gna work that’s all
