Leeds United supporters on Twitter have provided mixed reactions as Samuel Saiz made his debut for Getafe against Barcelona on Sunday evening.
The Yorkshire club announced on their official website in December that playmaker Saiz would join the La Liga club on loan from the Championship outfit in January with a view to a permanent move in the summer.
Following his return to Spanish football, Saiz came on as a second-half substitute against the Catalan club as they won the encounter 2-1.
One fan sarcastically questioned why Saiz left in the first place as he pointed out that he went from playing against the likes of David Wheater to sharing the same field as Lionel Messi.
The Argentine found the back of the net against Getafe at the weekend, with former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez getting Barcelona's other goal as they opened up a five-point lead at the top of La Liga.
Nonetheless, a Leeds supporter did question whether Saiz would want to come back to Elland Road in the summer if they get promoted to the Premier League.
Marcelo Bielsa's side currently sit top of the second tier of English football as they hope to end their near 15-year absence from the top-flight.
Here is a selection of Leeds supporters offering their thoughts on Saiz's debut for his new club against Barcelona:

Gutting to think my favourite Leeds players at the very start of this season were Saiz and Ronaldo Vieira.. #LUFC— ROSSii (@MrROSSii1990) January 6, 2019
