Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s comments about Tyler Roberts after the match against Millwall.

Roberts featured for Leeds in their Championship match against Millwall away from home at The Den on Saturday afternoon.

The Wales international striker started the game and played for 68 minutes, as it ended in a 1-1 draw.

 

The 19-year-old - who has been at Leeds since January 2018 when he moved from West Bromwich Albion for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £2.5 million - struggled to make a huge impact in the match and did not exactly have a great game.

Roberts did have a few chances to score, but the teenage striker did get on the ball and his movement was very encouraging.

Leeds head coach Bielsa praised the Wales international striker after the match, and is quoted as saying by Leeds Live (17:29): “Some people value the strikers when they score a goal. But I prefer to value them taking into account the number of chances they have to score.

“I think he had three or four chances to score. And if he had scored one goal we would be all saying that he had done a wonderful performance. I think he did a correct performance, a good performance.”
