The Portuguese winger was lukewarm again for Leeds United today.
Helder Costa had another mixed display for Leeds United this afternoon.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side edged out Blackburn Rovers 2-1 at Elland Road, but the home fans still haven’t seen the best of their Portuguese winger.
Costa, on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, started on the right-hand side of Leeds’ attack and, despite plenty of promising running, there was more lack of end product.
United are committed to paying £15 million for him at the end of this season [The Daily Mail] and he doesn’t look like a player worth that much money.
Some Leeds fans liked the look of him today, while others offered a harsher assessment of his performance:
Costa 15 million he’s bloody brutal— Jordan Cullen (@Cullen_Jordan1) November 9, 2019
Best we’ve seen of Costa this #LUFC— MJ (@elland_toad) November 9, 2019
Costa – decent player but 15 mill? Needs to do an awful lot more. Wish it had been option to buy rather than obligation. Come on Helda, prove me wrong.— Janey (@Scoutsa) November 9, 2019
Leeds just had a little spell of pressure, led by a brilliant run from Costa. What you want to see from the £15m man. #LUFC— AGB (@BurnsAlfie) November 9, 2019
Costa man, control that— Albert (@Albertlufc) November 9, 2019
Costa been quiet all game. Go Pablo. #lufc— Guy Stanton (@Fancymeetingcod) November 9, 2019
Costa is definitely growing into his role as we give him more games. #lufc— Tommy (@tommy_lufc) November 9, 2019
Well played Costa #lufc— Archielufc (@archiedowns03) November 9, 2019
The talent is definitely there with Costa but, for whatever reason, the end product isn’t.
We’re already in November and it’s safe to say that the Wolves winger really isn’t delivering right now and it’s a worry.
Fifteen million is a lot of money, especially if Leeds don’t win Premier League promotion, and the sooner Costa starts performing, the better.
