Leeds United fans have criticised Tottenham Hotspur loanee Jack Clarke’s showing against Salford City.
Tottenham signed Clarke from Leeds this summer, but loaned him back to Elland Road for the season.
Clarke made his first start of the campaign for Leeds last night, and helped them to a 3-0 victory over Salford.
But many Leeds fans have suggested that Clarke didn’t look particularly interested, after sealing his move to Spurs.
Based on what I've seen from Clarke so far this season I think we've had spurts trowsers down he flashes some great skill but can't make it through a full game & also seems very lightweight #LUFC— Leeds Fan in Chicago (@ChicagoWhite) August 13, 2019
As we can only have 5 loans in the squad then it has to be Jack Clarke dropped....kid looks totally disinterested and predictable #lufc— Adam Webster (@adswebbo) August 13, 2019
Not sure why we loaned back Clarke if I'm honest. He seems to of really regressed. Should of got Kent and left Clarke at spurs #lufc— Ben (@ben080385) August 13, 2019
6 months ago Jack Clarke looked the next best thing. He doesn’t even look worthy of a spot on the bench now#lufc— Tom Huffinley (@THuff1994) August 13, 2019
Thought Clarke looked a bit lethargic tonight. I wish Bamford could have scored that 1-1. #lufc— Tom (@murgs78) August 13, 2019
He's not the same player that burst on the scene that's for sure. Was shocking tonight.— Luke (@DareschaniXxx) August 13, 2019
Clarke is so young that he still hasn’t become a permanent starter for Leeds, with Marcelo Bielsa preferring to use him from the bench.
Tottenham will be hoping that Clarke is exposed to more game time in the Championship before the season finishes.
However, Leeds have strengthened their attack this summer, with the additions of Helder Costa and Eddie Nketiah.
Leeds scored their goals against Salford last night through Nketiah, Mateusz Klich and Gaetano Berardi.
