Leeds United fans have issued a mixed reaction on social media to the news that the striker has received international recognition.
There has been a mixed reaction amongst Leeds fans on Twitter to the news that Jay-Roy Grot will be a part of the Netherlands' under-20 squad for their upcoming friendlies with Switzerland and Italy.
Grot has not exactly enjoyed the best time since arriving at Elland Road in the wake of Chris Wood's departure at the end of the summer window.
His imposing physique suggested that he would provide something different to Thomas Christiansen's squad, especially when his first piece of notable action saw him out-muscle a Nottingham Forest player and almost send him off the City Ground pitch on his debut.
Unfortunately, he has not exactly kicked on during his first few months in Yorkshire, failing to find the back of the net in his first 12 appearances for the Whites - though he has started on just two occasions, both coming in the Carabao Cup.
With Leeds looking woefully out of form lately, Grot is one of the players who seems to have attracted the most criticism from the supporters - and that has meant that many have questioned the decision to bring him in the Dutch under-20s squad for the international break.
But his call-up has also prompted a number of fans to criticise the supporters who have slated Grot, and those fans have reiterated that the forward deserves time as he is still young and is still finding his feet in the Championship.
Here is the best of the mixed reaction...
They must be desperatel— Anthony Thompson (@Anthony60585707) 4 November 2017
Short are they— CM (@chris_lufc1) 4 November 2017
How?— Chantelle (@clunn1989) 4 November 2017
It’s not April the 1st— Mart Lowe (@ML87_) 4 November 2017
Wood got the same treatment in the start. Why put him down? He's 19 and built like a machine, give him time. Exciting prospect.— Kim Robert Lund (@Lund1993) 4 November 2017
A run of games and a few goals and this lad will be a class player. Believe in our own.— Adam Green (@AdamGreen0823) 4 November 2017
But that right peg though. Once that starts connecting he'll be a beast— (@bobbygamora) 4 November 2017
Really do think this lad will be good for us, maybe not this season he’s young and learning his trade still give him time #MOT— Shaun Meakin (@shaunmeakin10) 4 November 2017
Hope the young lad does well and gains some much needed confidence #lufc— Ian Murray (@imurray1964) 4 November 2017
Clearly they see something on him that we haven’t seen at LUFC yet...give him time and he may surprise us.— Jamar (@jamesalinton) 4 November 2017
