Leeds United fans have been professing their love for Illan Meslier after a clip of the youngster celebrating a goal emerged.
In a clip from LS11, the France youth international is seen jumping off the bench and pumping his fists after the Whites were given the lead by Pablo Hernandez in the clash with Reading. The ‘keeper is on loan at the club from Lorient, however, has played a bit-part role for the first-team this season with his only appearance coming in the loss away to Arsenal in the FA Cup (via Transfermarkt).
One supporter called him a ‘fan’.

Considering Kiko Casilla could yet be banned by the FA after he had a hearing into his charge of racism against Jonathan Leko last week and Marcelo Bielsa commented on the 20-year-old, claiming the Ligue 2 loanee is ready to take over from the former Real Madrid player should that happen (via Yorkshire Evening Post). As a result, fans were left showing their support for the number two ‘keeper after his celebration emerged. Let’s take a look at some responses:
Please can we keep him @LUFC
