Wilfried Gnonto looks to quit Leeds United after Javi Gracia decision - Sky Sports pundit
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has suggested Willy Gnonto could look to quit Leeds United after seeing reduced gametime under Javi Gracia.
The 19-year-old was visibly frustrated after being substituted during the 4-2 win over Wolves having previously been benched for the fixtures against Chelsea and Brighton.
Robinson has claimed the Italian could look to move on if he remains a bit-part player from now until the end of the 2022/23 season.
“It’s hard to understand why he’s not deemed good enough to start for Leeds or why he’s taken off after an hour,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News.
“If I was him and I remained a bit part player and Javi Gracia stayed next season I would be looking to get out as well.”
