‘What a signing!’, ‘He looks absolutely class’ – Was this a masterstroke from Christiansen at Leeds?



Leeds United have enjoyed a strong start to the Sky Bet Championship and currently sit in fifth spot in the division.

Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen signed an array of players in the summer transfer window, a large amount of unknown quantities from across Europe.

One player who was signed in the summer is attacking midfielder Samuel Saiz, who is excelling for the Whites this season.

Was this a masterstroke from manager Thomas Christiansen?

The writers here at Football League World have issued their opinions on the man signed from Huesca in the summer…..

Chris Gallagher

What a signing!

Saiz oozes class and will terrorise many more defences this season.

The style of play has evolved from last season under Garry Monk and Thomas Christiansen deserves huge credit for that, and Saiz is a key reason.

Even in defeat last time out against Wednesday he was the standout player for the Whites. Leeds could have a star on their hands here.

Alfie Burns

An exceptional talent that has lit up Elland Road so far this season.

Saiz has terrorised Championship defenders already this season, proving to be a vital cog in Leeds United’s starting XI.

The Spanish playmaker has made the number 10 role his own, and the partnership developing between him and Pablo Hernandez has the potential to take Leeds back to the Premier League.

Leeds’ signing of the summer.

George Dagless

Like many of Leeds’ summer arrivals, he was a bit of an unknown but we all know about him now.

He’s arguably Leeds’ best new face this season and the way he can change games with a quick bit of thinking or trickery is sublime.

Leeds are chasing promotion back to the Premier League and if they achieve it Saiz will be right at the centre of that.

Adam Simeoni

He looks absolutely class.

Assured on the ball with an excellent passing range, the Spaniard sits excellently behind the main striker, finding space where there realistically shouldn’t be any to be found.

Although nowhere near the talents of Juan Mata and David Silva, then Spanish playmaker gene is implanted firmly in the DNA of the Leeds man, and he has the potential to go on to play in the Premier League if he continues the form he has showed thus far.
