Leeds United fans have been reacting angrily on Twitter to comments Jack Clarke has recently made in an article by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
| “This is where you get your sharpness” Jack Clarke reflects on last night’s win, and discusses the importance of pre-season

The youngster completed a switch to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer for an initial transfer fee of £10million (BBC), however, he will spend the next season back on loan with his former club.
The Whites posted a tweet directing fans to an article on their club’s official website regarding the young winger, however, supporters continued to vent their frustrations with what he had said.
The 18-year-old managed to score two goals and provide two assists in his breakthrough season for Marcelo Bielsa’s side last year.
But figures like that can be easily forgotten by fans, especially following the comments he made regarding how he saw his future away from Elland Road.
Clarke was quoted as saying: “Obviously there was always a plan to move on from Leeds eventually but I’d have much preferred it if we’d have gone up last year.”
And, those remarks have angered many of the Leeds faithful this summer as they have been quick to take to Twitter to tell him to head back to Spurs.
Here are just some of the reactions…
Send him back to spurs.

Now he’s spouting . He is only a lone player now so he should keep is gob shut . We are being mugged off by keeping him on loan , let spurs work with him. He will be on our bench for most part.

Nobody put a gun to his head and said sign for Tottenham. Should really not be at leeds as he turned his back on them and signed for anouther team. Should never have cashed in and sold him.
