Transfer Flashbacks: Hadi Sacko

Transfer Flashbacks: Hadi Sacko

The Marcelo Bielsa revolution is in full swing at Leeds United with the Yorkshire club having made a great start to the season while playing some very good football in the process.

One player, however, who will play no part in whatever Leeds accomplish this campaign is Hadi Sacko with the Frenchman currently on loan in Spain at Las Palmas.

Sacko was deemed surplus to requirements by Bielsa, although that may not surprise most Leeds supporters who were never sold on the 24-year-old’s initial arrival at the club back in 2016.

Sacko joined Leeds from Sporting Lisbon on loan before his deal eventually became permanent in what can only be described as a lacklustre piece of business done by the club.

In his first season at Elland Road, Sacko was only able to score two goals and set up four in 38 appearances.

Sacko found it extremely difficult to come up with the goods in the final third with his final ball and finishing severely lacking, something that showed no rooms improvement the following season with the Bordeaux youth product failing to register a single goal or assist during the 2017/18 Championship campaign.

Ultimately, Sacko’s move to Elland Road has not worked out and the Leeds faithful saw it coming.
