Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the club’s decision on Pawel Cibicki.
The 25-year-old, who can operate as a striker or as a winger, spent the first half of the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Norwegian club Molde FK.
Some Leeds fans are not happy at head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s decision to send the attacker out on loan given the injuries they have had.
Below are some of the best comments:
Might go watch him at training one day, seemed like a nice guy.— Aapo Halme isn’t very small (@RMaudsleyPhotos) January 11, 2019
Forgot he still played for us— ROSSii (@MrROSSii1990) January 11, 2019
thin squad and sending able wingers on loan? come on sort it out , we'll be crying if roofe and hernandez are injured after february long term— Paul Milner (@paulmilner365) January 11, 2019
really needed a game or two to prove himself, why are we loaning our players who haven’t been given a proper chance to prove themselves at this level— Martyn Searson-Smith (@martyn_ss) January 11, 2019
He was still here?? I thought he'd gone— Luciano (@LUFCLDP1989) January 11, 2019
Cibicki has struggled to make an impact at Leeds since his move from Swedish club Malmo FF in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £1.5 million.
It does make sense for the attacker to move to Elfsborg on loan to get regular playing time, but the 25-year-old staying at Leeds would have given Bielsa another option.
Leeds returned to winning ways in the Championship last Friday evening and are aiming to finish in the top two of the league table this season.
