Leeds United: Fans lambaste Kiko Casilla as they call for Illan Meslier to be given a start

Leeds United: Fans lambaste Kiko Casilla as they call for Illan Meslier to be given a start - Leeds United

Some Leeds United fans have been tearing into a Championship ever-present as they called for him to be replaced by a young player.

When asked about who should start in goal in the Championship game against Nottingham Forest, some supporters claimed that it was time young talent Illan Meslier got a start ahead of Kiko Casilla as they blasted the Spaniard. The former Real Madrid man has featured in every single league game this season, only one of two players to have achieved the feat (via WhoScored).

However, he has been quite error-prone this campaign with his latest mistake against Wigan Athletic earning him the wrath of both a pundit and the Yorkshire faithful. Former Leeds player Noel Whelan ripped into the ‘keeper as he claimed ‘you get what you paid for’ in response to his clanger against the Latics (via Football Insider).

Who would you rather see in goal for the rest of the season?
