Departing Leeds United player delivers passionate message

Hadi Sacko has delivered a departing message to Leeds United, after agreeing a loan move to Spain to link up with Las Palmas.  

The Spanish second division side confirmed last night that Sacko would be arriving on-loan, with Las Palmas also providing a number of updates this morning, as Sacko completes his move from the Sky Bet Championship.

After two years in Leeds, Sacko has taken to his personal Twitter account to deliver a departing message to Leeds’ supporters, which read:

Sacko arrived at Leeds in the summer of 2016, initially on-loan, before Leeds took up the option to sign him permanently last summer.

He was a regular under Garry Monk during the 2016/17 campaign, scoring two Championship goals and helping the Whites into promotion contention that season.

However, following his permanent move, Sacko found his opportunities limited, with Thomas Christiansen and Paul Heckingbottom turning to other options in the Championship last season.

The 24-year-old made just 18 appearances across all competitions for the Whites, with his only goal coming in the Carabao Cup victory over Burnley in September.

The Verdict

Sacko was very inconsistent during his spell at Elland Road, but there was no doubt that supporters at Leeds valued the effort he put in.

Amongst supporters, Sacko was popular, but ultimately, his efforts on the field weren’t good enough.

A move away from England feels like the best option for the 24-year-old, who lacked the touch and quality in the final third to excel in the Championship.
