Leeds United: Whites fans react to Pierre-Michel Lasogga leaving Hamburg

Leeds United: Whites fans react to Pierre-Michel Lasogga leaving Hamburg - Championship

When Pierre-Michel Lasogga joined Leeds United on loan from Hamburg in 2017, their supporters had every right to feel excited given his previous escapades in the Bundesliga.

Capable of causing havoc when at his very best, the forward arrived at Elland Road with a lot of pressure to deliver for his new side.

Yet despite reaching double figures in terms of goals for the Whites last season, Lasogga’s lack of fitness proved to be a real issue for the 27-year-old as he was unable to make the impact that was expected of him.

With Leeds more than willing to let him go upon the expiry of his loan last summer, it would have been somewhat of a surprise to many to see just how productive the forward turned out to be for Hamburg during the 2018/19 campaign.

Although he was unable to help his side secure promotion from the second division in Germany, Lasogga enjoyed a brilliant year individually as he fired in 19 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.

Arguably playing the best football of his career to date, the forward’s decision to not agree a new deal with Die Rothosen duly prompted speculation about a possible return to West Yorkshire in the upcoming transfer window.

However, with his previous performances during his brief spell in England leaving a lot to be desired, loads of Leeds fans took to Twitter to dissuade their club from even thinking about signing Lasogga.
