Leeds United: Fans reacted to Caleb Ekuban’s hat-trick for Trabzonspor in Europa League

Leeds United fans took to Twitter after witnessing Caleb Ekuban strike a hat-trick for Trabzonspor in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The forward, who spent last season on loan at the Turkish outfit, was in fine form as he managed to put Greek outfit AEK Athens to the sword.

Trabzonspor won 3-1 on the night and Ekuban managed to bag all three as he put his side in the driving seat of the Europa League tie.

The striker has been joined at the club by some established names this season, with the likes of John Obi Mikel, Daniel Sturridge and Crystal Palace flop Alexander Sorloth.

Ekuban really struggled during his time at Leeds as he hardly had the desired impact that would have been initially hoped for when he joined from Italian outfit Chievo Verona (club’s official website).

In the 21 appearances he made for the Whites, he managed to score just two goals and provide one assist – although he was significantly hampered by injuries (Transfermarkt) – before Marcelo Bielsa joined and allowed him to leave Elland Road last summer.

Fans could not believe what they had seen on Twitter, with many of them taking to the social media site to share their immediate reactions to the news.

Here are some of their reactions to their former player’s exploits on Thursday night…
