Loads of Leeds United fans have been reacting to footage of a stunning goal scored by Jay-Roy Grot at the weekend.
The 21-year-old signed for the club when Thomas Christiansen was in charge, joining from NEC Nijmegen for £1.5 million in 2017 (Wakefield Express). But he is currently spending time back in the Netherlands on loan at Vitesse Arnhem.
His team took on FC Twente on Saturday and Grot scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory, and what an effort it was. He picked up the ball in his own half and beat one opposition player before cutting inside onto his right foot and drifting past another, going on to slot calmly past the goalkeeper (@jayroy_grot).
Grot has failed to make any sort of impact at Elland Road so far, scoring just one goal in 22 appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit. He has since been on loan at VVV-Venlo where he netted six in 34, whilst his goal against Twente was just his second in 25 appearances for Vitesse (Transfermarkt).
However, despite his poor goal scoring ratio, some Leeds fans have responded to the video of his brilliant solo effort by suggesting that he could still have a future with the club. Indeed one even suggested that Marcelo Bielsa could “work wonders” with the Dutch under-21 international, whilst another claimed he “could be fabulous” under the Argentine.
Here is what some had to say…
Pre-season under Bielsa and he could be fabulous
