Leeds United: Fans call for Marcelo Bielsa to start Helder Costa

Leeds United fans have been calling for Marcelo Bielsa to start Helder Costa on Twitter.

Phil Hay recently wrote an article for The Athletic (subscription required) suggesting that the Argentine could look to use the Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee in their upcoming match against Derby County.

The journalist stated that Costa could come into the side and provide Bielsa’s side with some of the quality that they have been lacking in the wide positions.

Indeed, the 25-year-old (who is set to join Leeds on a permanent deal at the end his loan spell) has made just seven substitute appearances in the Championship so far, with Jack Harrison appearing to be favoured from the beginning.

It might not be a bad move for Bielsa to use Costa from the start, either. The Portugal international has recorded one assist (something the Manchester City loanee has not managed to achieve), whilst he has also contributed with an average of 0.4 key passes in 136 minutes of action (WhoScored).

Fans took to Twitter to call for the manager to use the winger from the beginning, with many suggesting he could make a huge difference on the pitch and, perhaps, benefit Patrick Bamford as well.

Here are just some of their reactions…
