Sunderland fans have absolutely slated Leeds United loanee Laurens de Bock after his performance for them last night.
De Bock joined Sunderland from Leeds in the summer, and he was looking to make an impact in English football, after struggling at Elland Road.
However, even after taking a step down the divisions, De Bock has still struggled at the Stadium of Light.
The Belgian left-back has found it difficult to get game time at Sunderland.
And Leeds supporters will not be encouraged after reading Sunderland fans’ views on his latest performance, after the Black Cats were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City’s under-21 side in the EFL Trophy yesterday.

Kimpioka, Mcgeough, C.Mclaughlin and De bock all couldnt lace my boots!!— Marco Oswald (@Marco_Oswald90) November 5, 2019
Then you look at some of the players we've signed. Glenn Loovens, Jerome Sinclair, Kazaiah Sterling, Jimmy Dunne. And then we've let Adam Matthews and Reece James go and brought in De Bock and McLaughlin to replace them. #safc— Jordan Ramsey (@RamseySAFC) November 5, 2019
Incredibly generous marking. Here’s mine. JM 7, CM 5, de bock 3, Willis6, Flanagan 6, McGeouch 3, leadbitter 4, Watmore 5, Maguire, 5,— Ian chester (@Ianc1102) November 5, 2019
Mc Nulty 5, Kimpioka 3. Cmon let’s be honest.
Completely agree. He’s livid, and with good reason. De Bock is surely finished here, and although I’ve backed him to the hilt, I think McGeouch will be heading back to Scotland in January. Parkinson strikes me as someone who won’t tolerate driftwood in the club.— Philip West (@Philip_RJ89) November 5, 2019
Can we send De Bock and McNulty back in January? And Kimpioka, would be giving him a new boot deal, never mind a new contract, cos the lad is barely a footballer. Major changes required in January #safc— Gareth Barker (@GarethBarkerWMS) November 5, 2019
De Bock seemed to have no future at Leeds regardless of how this loan went, but his performances will be doing little to give Marcelo Bielsa reason to think he needs to reconsider.
De Bock now seems to be fighting a losing battle to win a shirt at Sunderland, as he could his first-team chances even more limited after last night’s terrible display.
