Ian Wright sends two-word Twitter message to Bielsa after Leeds draw v Preston

Ian Wright has taken an interest in Leeds since young striker Eddie Nketiah arrived on loan. 

We saw him in the crowd at Elland Road when Nketiah scored a late winner against Brentford back in August.

And he was active on Twitter last night after Nketiah rescued a point for his side after coming on as a late substitute.

It was his fifth goal for the club but he’s yet to start in the Championship.

First, Wright responded to an official LUFC Tweet announcing the Nketiah equaliser.

He sent a meme of Lionel Ritchie phoning up and saying “Hello?”

He was far less cryptic in his second tweet of the night, which was aimed squarely at manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Responding to a Phil Hay tweet celebrating the goal, Wright shouted, “Start him!!!!!”

That was the opinion of lots of Leeds fans too last night but Bielsa didn’t commit himself after the game.

In his post-match press conference, he noted that the visiting fans had chanted for Nketiah and Bamford last night.

“If you listen to the supporters, in one minute they ask for Nketiah. In the second after, they shouted for Bamford. Everyone can give an opinion in football.”

This is true, but the opinions are starting to rack up.

Bielsa’s is the only one that counts but surely this latest goal has to change his mind. We would really like Nketiah to start against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
