Leeds fans react to Costa debut v Guiseley
Helder Costa got off the mark in his very first game for Leeds – and what a goal it was.
After sitting out of the first pre-season friendly against York on Wednesday, Costa took to the field against Guiseley on Thursday and helped turn the game round.
Guiseley were 1-0 up at half-time and 70 minutes had gone before Costa turned on the magic, turning and driving into the box past a couple of defenders before slotting the ball home into the opposite corner.
It was a glimpse of what Leeds fans will be hoping to see more of next season, and the club’s new signing helped complete the turnaround against Guiseley with a brilliant set-up for the winner from Mateusz Bogusz ten minutes later.
It was a really solid start to his Leeds career and the game showcased his skills and his versatility, as he started on the left before switching flanks and netting his debut goal.
It showed that he’s capable of creating something from nothing and that he knows how to find the back of the net – something Leeds really struggled with last season.
Ben White at centre-back also had a solid debut and showed that he’s comfortable on the ball, looking to get forward whenever he could.
The headlines went to Costa though and Leeds fans loved what they’ve seen from their new man so far:
Helder Costa has proved himself already 🙌😍🤩#lufc
