Leeds should have sold Roofe

Leeds should have sold Roofe

Leeds United currently find themselves sitting at the top of the Championship table after securing all three points against Swansea City last time out.

The Whites will need to ensure consistency from here on in if they are to stand any chance of meeting their aims, with a number of teams all fighting for a limited amount of places.

However, one thing that has been worrying supporters in recent times is the fact that Kemar Roofe has dropped off the pace massively, with no goals to his name in his last five Championship appearances.

Indeed, the Englishman established himself as one of the standout performers for the Whites during the first half of the season as he grabbed an impressive amount of goals, with his tally currently standing at 14. But, things have gone awfully quiet in recent times, which has had a negative affect on some of Leeds’ results as he just hasn’t been able to find the finishing touch that brought him so much success earlier on in the current campaign.

It’s safe to say that Leeds should have cashed in on him last month, despite him playing a big part this season, as his performances since January have been less than impressive. The Whites would have had time to bring in a proven replacement for Roofe and he would have more than likely attracted a big fee.

So, with Leeds now having to deal with his inconsistencies in front of goal, it now looks as if they should have made the brave decision to move him on while they could.
