Leeds player close to exit despite starting first two games

Posted by

Things still haven’t really settled down for Daniel Farke at Leeds United, with the German having to deal with all manner of issues at the club.

Willy Gnonto has effectively gone on strike in order to try and force through a move to Everton or any other interested Premier League party, whilst Tyler Adams could also be on the move.

With a number of departures just before or just after Farke arrived in Elland Road hot-seat, the manager has barely had the time to get his starting XI bedded down, and it seems that there could be yet another departure on the cards.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, although he’s played two games for Leeds already in 2023/24, Leo Hjelde is on the verge of agreeing a switch to Salernitana.

It would mean yet more upheaval for Farke and it’s surely incumbent upon new owners, 49ers Enterprises, to back him in the transfer market before it closes in just under three weeks time.

If they either unable or unwilling to do so to any great degree, it really does put the German at a disadvantage from the get-go.

Though it wouldn’t make his position untenable as such, it places untold pressure on Farke to deliver whilst having one arm tied behind his back for want of a better phrase.

  1. it is with great sadness to see what is unfolding so far away l wasn’t born in leeds and l will not die in leeds but l can tell you from the moment l seen the 1972 fa cup victory l fell in love with one club it is a shame that these players who were involved in last year’s disastrous campaign that got us relegated haven’t got the guts or the fight to fix what’s happened. Only self interest from these individuals – good riddance. P.S. Still the greatest fans in the world, but they deserve better

  2. The players who wish to leave are displaying the same lack of courage that resulted in us being relegated. When the going gets tough, they go missing. Take the money and let them go.

  3. It is so sad to see the players who got us relegated showing no fight or love for the club. We have to get rid of them and bring in players who not only will love the club, the fans, and be willing to fight for all.

  4. The good book says an eye for an eye and common law says, do unto others as they have done to you. So, Willy Gnonto has effectively gone on strike. Let him learn a lesson, don’t sell him, let him languish in the second tier comp until he realises how this great club was relegated because of players like him.
