Leeds fans react to Clarke performance v Stoke

Is this the end of Jack Clarke at Leeds?

He hasn’t been playing well this season and he’s been the fall guy in the Leeds conundrum of having six loan players when you’re only allowed five in your squad.

That’s seen him dropped from the Championship squads with Bielsa giving him starts in the EFL Cup.

Leeds were knocked out on penalties by Stoke on Tuesday night but Clarke wasn’t even on the pitch at that point. He was hooked at half-time by Marcelo Bielsa and if he sticks to his policy of dropping Clarke from the league squads, he could easily end up being recalled by parent club Tottenham in January.

There are plenty of Leeds fans who wouldn’t care if that happened sooner. Clarke has done nothing this season and was poor in the tail-end of last season when he came back from a long-term illness.

It’s not outside of the realm of possibility that he’s just played his last game for the club.
