Some Leeds United fans on social media have been reacting to the news that Jean-Kevin Augustin will spend the rest of the season in the reserves at Nantes.
The French striker has had numerous issues with his fitness in the past 12 months, and after a spell at Leeds where he struggled to get off the bench, Augustin continues to struggle in France.
Nantes manager has previously hit out at him for his inability to get fit, and it seems as though enough is finally enough as he’s been condemned to stay in the reserves.
Leeds may still end up having to pay a hefty fee for Augustin as their dispute with Leipzig over their obligation to buy the striker is yet to come to a conclusion.
As you can imagine, Leeds fans had plenty to say about this update on their former loanee.
The prevailing feeling amongst the fanbase was that of sympathy, with many fans saying they feel sorry for him and that he doesn’t deserve to have such bad luck.
We can only hope that Augustin gets his career back on track, because it seems as though things are slightly spiralling out of control for the Frenchman.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying about this update on Augustin.
Got to feel for the guy at this point, deserves to find a club who really want him as their #1 Striker
