Eddie Nketiah of Leeds United arrives prior to the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United at Hillsborough Stadium on October 26, 2019 in Sheffield, England.

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s comments about Arsenal-owned striker Eddie Nketiah’s future.

Nketiah, signed on loan from Premier League club Arsenal in the summer transfer window, is on the sidelines at the moment with a lower abdominal injury.

The striker has yet to start a Championship match for the Whites, and it remains to be seen if the youngster wants to go back to his parent club Arsenal in the January transfer window if he does not get enough playing time when he recovers.

According to WhoScored, the 20-year-old has scored three goals in 265 minuets of Championship football for the Whites so far this season.

 

Leeds head coach Bielsa has given his take on the future of the 20-year-old, and has suggested that it depends on how he feels he is doing at Elland Road.

Bielsa told The Yorkshire Evening Post: “I think that if he feels comfortable with us this is going to be the key for him to stay or not.

“It is for him to say, not for me. We have the same position as when he arrived at Leeds.

“After living and sharing with him, our opinion about him is better than the initial position we had before he arrived here and that was very good.”

Leeds fans have responded to Bielsa’s comments on Nketiah’s future, and below are some of the best comments on Twitter.
