“His attitude is Utterly Disgraceful and Disrespectful to his employers, his teammates and the fans”- Leeds fans reacts in support of club as Whites issue strong disciplinary statement on Willy Gnonto situation

Leeds United have issued an adamant statement that Willy Gnonto is not for sale amid reports of a £20m bid from Everton.

The Italian international did not feature in midweek as the Whites advanced into the second round of the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town.

The 19-year-old has been the subject of interest from Everton this window but was told by the club earlier this week he would not be sold this summer.

After telling the club he felt unable to play on Wednesday, he returned to training on Thursday and Friday but has again made himself unavailable for Leeds’ visit to Birmingham City on Saturday.

A Leeds United statement read: “Earlier this week, Willy Gnonto and his representatives were informed by the club that he would not be sold this summer. Following those conversations, Willy felt he was unable to play in Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup tie with Shrewsbury Town.

“Despite training for the last two days, Willy has informed Daniel Farke that he still does not feel able to play this weekend and has not travelled to Birmingham for the game tomorrow. This is now an internal disciplinary matter and the club will make no further comment, other than to reiterate that Willy Gnonto is not for sale.”

Leeds fans have now Taken to Social media to react to the report

A second fan commented: Disgraceful and disrespectful to his employers. He should be fined for every game or training he misses for breach of contract. Stick him in the under 18s.”

A third commented: If we cave, other players might follow suit. Fine him for every week he doesn’t turn up and hold him to his contract – unless someone stumps up £25m.

A Fourth fan reacted: Good. For once, a football club needs to make an example of a player trying to force a move. I’m delighted that opportunity falls to #lufc, and hope the new owners play hard-ball, fine him, and have him train and play with the 23s

A sixth commented: This is a tragic way to end what was a blossoming relationship. He’s 19 a year ripping up the championship is exactly what he needs. These agents are so detrimental.

Another fan reacted: Disgraceful from someone we gave a chance in the prem. Still has plenty of time on his hands. Could of stayed and helped get us back up. If the right offer comes in then sell him. If not it will be awkward for him when he does come back and play
