Danny Mills has claimed that Leeds United may need to “rethink” their goalkeeping plan after Ilan Messelia’s “indifferent” campaign began.
The former Whites and Coventry forward, to speak exclusively Football Insider Correspondent Dylan Childs suggests the 20-year-old could have done better than Saturday’s 4-3 win over Fulham.
The French goalkeeper has started two fixtures in Leeds United’s Premier League this season, and Marcelo Billesa is clearly at number one.
Messer, who has a permanent 5 million contract with the Yorkshire club this summer, could have reasonably done better with Fulham’s second and third goals in a 4-3 win over Eland Road.
Football Insider It was revealed that the Whites were interested in Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez before setting foot at Aston Villa for an initial m 1m last week.
When asked Football Insider When asked about Messi’s performance on Saturday, Mills said: “It simply came to our notice then.
“He didn’t make a mistake but a top quality defender could have saved them.
“He’s still so young and until he comes back to the next game and puts in a good performance but no problem.
“If he does two, three, four of these two indifferent performances, Leeds will have to think a little bit about their strategy.”
Second-choice goalkeeper Kiko Casilla was a notable absence from the squad that beat Fulham yesterday and Marcelo Bielsa later revealed that the former Real Madrid man was injured.
Kakila suffered an ankle injury to his ankle against Hull City on Wednesday as Leeds collapsed from the EFL Cup due to a penalty.
Danny Mills reports from other Leeds United news outlets Football Insider The big name after Fulham’s win is “lucky no fans”.
