Leeds United fans were professing their love for January signing Jean-Kevin Augustin after his tweet about Millwall’s Bartosz Białkowski following last night’s 3-2 win over Gary Rowett’s side.
The France under-21 international took aim at the Polish ‘keeper for taking his time at goal kicks, claiming he didn’t know Championship shot-stoppers were allowed to take ’30 seconds to kick-off’ (via Jean-Kevin Augustin). The 22-year-old made the move to Elland Road last week on an initial loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer from Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig (via The Guardian).
Białkowski’s antics didn’t hamper the Yorkshire outfit, who turned around a 2-0 deficit to beat the Lions 3-2 after a sensational start to the second half. Goals from Patrick Bamford and Pablo Hernandez ensured that Marcelo Bielsa’s side won just their second game in their last nine fixtures across all competitions (via WhoScored).
Fans found the tweet from the winter signing hilarious as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from supporters:
