A number of Leeds United supporters have laid into Robin Koch’s first-half performance against Manchester United.
The White have started their Premier League season with a trip to Old Trafford, in the latest chapter in a long rivalry between the two clubs.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are aiming to replicate last season’s performance, in which the Whites finished ninth in the table and impressed neutrals with their style of play.
An entertaining opening 45 minutes saw the hosts have the better of the chances though, and Bruno Fernandes’ goal is the difference between the sides.
Bielsa has opted to play Koch in midfield, but it looks a decision that hasn’t paid off, with the centre-back struggling in an unfamiliar role.
Leeds fans react to Koch display
These Leeds fans took to Twitter to lay into Koch’s display against United.
“Koch is a CB not a midfielder. Doesnt put the hard work in“
“Really not impressed with Klich/Rodrigo/Koch so far. Leeds have been awful in the middle“
“Koch cannot play the Phillips role at all. Not good enough in possession or tackling.“
“Koch is nowhere“
“Koch over Phillips was a mistake“
“Koch caught flat-footed not tracking & the midfield’s absolutely all over the place“
In other news, Leeds are still reportedly interested in signing a player who shone at Euro 2020. Find out who it is here.
