Leeds United fans have praised Ben White’s debut for them against Guiseley.
Leeds won 2-1 in their pre-season friendly yesterday, with White pulling on the shirt for Marcelo Bielsa’s team for the first time.
White looked comfortable on the ball, as he strode forward out of Leeds’ defence.
And many supporters have praised the performance of the centre-back.
Shackleton gave 100% for the full 90 tonight, Klich also present to play the ball and move thr game forward. Costa grew into the game and showed quick feet, White also impressive and bursts forward. Good conditioning game #LeedsGuiseley #LUFC— Al Barrie (@White_Rose_Al) July 11, 2019
Very well pushes forward up the pitch more than Jansson if that's possible some fantastic touches and super calm on the ball #lufc— Absent DJ (@thisisabsentDJ) July 11, 2019
Personally I was impressed. Good at reading the game, pace, good interceptions and good at taking the ball out from the back. Solid debut in tough playing conditions— James Normington (@JN_Stormy) July 11, 2019
Ben White ⚽️. Top class. Who said he was crap? #lufc Don’t judge a player until you’ve seen him play.— Mac (@donnyleedsfan) July 11, 2019
Anyone else really impressed by white tonight ? Looks very good on the ball #LUFC— •Aaron (@Aaron_Peecs) July 11, 2019
Costa looked absolutely quality tonight and it’s easy to see why Bielsa has brought Ben White in. Looks very assured at the back and not afraid to run with the ball. Very impressive #LUFC— Dom (@Dom_Fletch89) July 11, 2019
Shackleton was like Prime Dani Alves and Ben White was stepping out like Baresi in his pomp #lufc— Armo ☀️ (@Jordan_Armo) July 11, 2019
Nice work @LUFC. Nowhere near the polished performance of last night but showed some steel. Ben White looks the real deal already. Sign him up on a permanent contract.— Mark Rankin (@tangent1974) July 11, 2019
Like what I saw of Ben White. Deffo looks a good ball playing CB, confident passer, & looks decent attacking wise. Gonna be a mad one when we have an overlapping CB in attack— :) (@Max_LUFC) July 11, 2019
Bogusz looks good, but Shackleton that guy is a top player in the making. Kenneh tho. So much potential.
Costa gonna be immense. Bogusz looks a baller too. Still need that extra CB. Can’t be having kalvin dropping in there again. Thinking white is Janssons replacement though #lufc— carl smith (@carlsmith_88) July 11, 2019
Leeds have signed White on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, and it was initially felt that he was likely to be a covering option.
However, the departure of Pontus Jansson means that there could be an opening for White to try and break into Leeds’ starting line-up.
White certainly has the ability in possession to be a hit at Elland Road and thrive in Bielsa’s team.
Leeds begin their season in around a month’s time, when they take on Bristol City.
