Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Ezgjan Alioski against Brentford.
Alioski featured for Leeds in their Championship match against Brentford at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
The 26-year-old winger started the game and played for the entire 90 minutes, as it ended in a 1-1 draw.
Leeds fans were impressed with the performance of the winger at left-back and have praised the Macedonia international, who joined the West Yorkshire outfit from Lugano in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £2 million.

Some left back is alioski— Jacob (@LufcJacob) October 6, 2018
Ref robbed us but Alioski looked a million times better filling in as LB imo— Jono M (@mitchell_jonny) October 6, 2018
Alioski left back? Played amazing there. Defensively and attractively. #lufc— WannaBeLeeds (@WannaBeLeedsMOT) October 6, 2018
Shout out to Alioski who was a revelation at left-back. #lufc— Jonathan Gittins (@JGittins93) October 6, 2018
Positives - Jansson immense, jack Clarke looked unfazed alioski stepped up to the plate, Forshaw n Clarke added some bite, Harrison n Dallas eventually overcame a 60 minute warmup - negatives Ayling and Cooper simply not good enough #LUFC— dude (@LYNSKEYDUDE) October 6, 2018
Thought Alioski looked brilliant there. Maybe sit him at left back while Douglas is out? Only problem is trying to fill his gap out on the wing.— Chad Sullivan (@ChadSullivan_) October 6, 2018
Alioski was miles better at left back. Also canny with a sneaky head butt in dug out #lufc— Karl (@Kdlittle26) October 6, 2018
No doubt we’re missing Pablo and Roofe. Thought we looked more balanced with Alioski at left-back. Defence - Jansson apart - struggled for usual fluency. #LUFC— James Varley (@jvarleyqatar) October 6, 2018
