Leeds United were beaten 3-0 by Sheffield Wednesday in their latest outing.
Leeds United fans have been left completely baffled by Thomas Christiansen’s decision to play Eunan O’Kane against Sheffield Wednesday, after the news broke that the midfielder needed painkilling injections before the contest.
Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill has revealed that O’Kane played for Leeds at Hillsborough, despite having cracked ribs, and the decision backfired on Christiansen.
O’Kane was miles off the pace, as Leeds were beaten 3-0 by Wednesday in their most recent outing.
And Leeds fans have questioned the logic behind starting an unfit O’Kane, ahead of the likes of Ronaldo Vieira or Mateusz Klich.
Why play him when he's not fit with Vieira fit and ready stupid decision.— Samuel Johnson (52%) (@MUZZA2017) October 4, 2017
Well that really does bring TC team selection and subsequent presser comments into question. Soft he says??..— ST (@Yorkshire77) October 3, 2017
Questions need to be asked of TC when we have like of RV on the bench yet persist with an injured player ?— Gary LUFC (@Gary_Calter) October 3, 2017
Shows how little he must think of the other centre mids for them to bother with the injection— Nick Dawe (@Dawesy101) October 3, 2017
That's a shocker from TC, Okane ain't that vital to risk a player not wanting to go into tackles which is how it turned out.Bad management.— Andy (@VacantFaith81) October 3, 2017
Why play him then, stupid decision with players on the Bench .— ian slingsby (@slingsby_i) October 3, 2017
Klich must think he was signed to peel oranges. Thanks Eunan. Top season thus far but this kind of bravado let the whole side & fans down.— RG (@rontecarlo) October 3, 2017
why did we play him when we've got Vieira and Klich then— Rainy (@JtotheRain) October 3, 2017
Leeds’ defeat to Wednesday was highly disappointing, and there are some concerns over their recent form, which has seen them slip down the Championship table.
Leeds have lost their last three away matches, with the Yorkshire side seemingly having a soft-core on their travels.
Leeds return to action after the international break, when they take on Reading.
