Ezgjan Alioski wasn't even fit for Leeds United yesterday, and yet he still managed make his presence known at Pride Park.

The Macedonia international won't kick a ball until next term after being ruled out of the end-of-season fixtures with injury.

Alioski travelled with Leeds' first team to support his team-mates in the 1-0 win at Derby County yesterday.

Before the game, the 27-year-old managed to get a telling-off from a steward for shaking the retractable tunnel as Marcelo Bielsa's side made their way on to the field to warm up.

 

It remains to be seen what Alioski was hoping to achieve, but a number of his team-mates - including Kalvin Phillips - and fans certainly saw the funny side.

The former Lugano winger, who has been playing left-back for much of 2019, has established himself as a bit of a character after doing the exact same thing at Deepdale last month.

United went on to win that game 2-0, so perhaps it's a superstition on Alioski's part.
