Leeds United were offering mixed reactions after Marcelo Bielsa revealed the latest news regarding Tyler Roberts and Jamie Shackleton.
The Argentine manager revealed that the duo would not be returning this weekend against Fulham, despite being fit again, instead they will be making their comebacks next week (via Phil Hay).
However, Bielsa did have some good news regarding the club’s captain Liam Cooper, who was revealed to be back for the game against the west London side (via LUFC).
The Yorkshire outfit will be looking to return to form this week after they let a three-goal lead slip at home to Cardiff City last weekend.
It was a result that saw them give up top spot in the Championship as West Bromwich Albion regained the lead following a narrow 3-2 win over Birmingham City.
Fans weren’t united in their response to the news about Shackleton and Roberts as they took to Twitter to give their varying opinions.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Yorkshire faithful:
happy christmas lads 😂
