‘Has every right to be angry’ – Plenty of Leeds fans react to Marcelo Bielsa’s Arsenal dig



Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has hit out at Arsenal over their treatment of the Yorkshire club in relation to the Eddie Nketiah saga, which has drawn an interesting response from many fans. 

The Whites signed Nketiah on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day but he found himself behind Patrick Bamford in the pecking order from the start.

The 20-year-old missed a period of around a month due to injury but made 19 appearances for Leeds in total and scored five goals for the Yorkshire club.

It was announced by Arsenal at the start of January that he had been recalled early, with it seeming as if their intention would be to send him on loan elsewhere.

Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, and Sheffield Wednesday were all understood to be interested in signing the Gunners forward until the end of the 2019/20 campaign but it was announced this morning that he would be staying at the Emirates.

Speaking in the press conference ahead of Leeds’ trip to face QPR on Saturday, Bielsa hit out at Arsenal over the Nketiah situation.

The 20-year-old’s exit has left Leeds in desperate need of a striker in the January transfer window, with Bamford currently the only striker in the Whites senior squad.
