Leeds fans have been loving life under Marcelo Bielsa this season, and are mostly content with their current squad. They have a few loanees kicking about who they can’t see cracking the first team upon their return with one of them being Hadi Sacko. However, yesterday saw the 24-year-old score a sumptuous goal in the Turkish Super Lig.

Popular Leeds journalist Phil Hay found a video of the 24-year-old’s wonderstrike and quoted it simply with the player’s name, leading to hundreds of Leeds fans seeing their loanees goal and marvelling at how he’s managed it. Sacko was a popular figure at Elland Road, but it wasn’t for his goals, as they didn’t come very often for the Whites.
In his time as a Leeds player, he’s racked up 60 goals, yet he has just three goals to show for those appearances. Sometimes all a player needs is a touch of confidence, and if Sacko can score a few more goals like the 30-yard curling effort he dispatched last night then there’s no reason why he can’t come back and have an impact on this Leeds side under Bielsa, even if the fans thin there’s no chance.
You can read the Whites’ verdict on Sacko’s incredible goal here:
Got to be his first touch that

He was actually trying to pass it to the right winger but mishit it

Nice to see his first touch is still as heavy as ever.

Hopefully he keeps scoring screamers and some thick Chinese club buy him for a couple of million.

That's his attempt at squaring it

Definitely a pass.

No matter how many times I watch it I still don’t believe it

The Whites are far from convinced that Sacko intentionally scored his wonder goal, and will need to see it a few more times from the winger to be sure.
