Leeds United fans were not impressed by Liam Bridcutt's display in the defeat to La Liga side Eibar.

Leeds fans have been reacting on Twitter to the performance of Liam Bridcutt during the Whites' pre-season friendly with Eibar - and it is safe to say that the majority were not impressed with the captain.

Thomas Christiansen's men rounded off their tour with Austria with a clash with the La Liga outfit. And they staged a brave fight back during the early stages of the second-half to come from 3-0 down to within one goal of their opponents.

Eibar would have the last say in the game however, as they added a fourth in the final minutes of the contest as Leeds attempted to push for an equaliser following Chris Wood's and Ezgjan Alioski's goal for the Championship side.

While many of the Leeds players on show were praised following their performances, one player in particular appeared to receive plenty of criticism from some of the supporters.

Despite his position as captain, some fans appear to now be concerned that Bridcutt's place in the team should be under threat after a lacklustre display in the latest game.

With the likes of Vurnon Anita, Mateusz Klich and Madger Gomes being added to the already-congested midfield over the course of the summer, there are doubts that Bridcutt would actually make the team if he was not the captain, and those doubts appeared to reach another level following the defeat.
