‘Leeds dropped a clanger’: Marseille fans react to Michael Cuisance’s debut

Leeds United appeared to do some outstanding business over the summer, with Marcelo Bielsa’s squad being bolstered with a number of marquee additions.

It was Marseille who managed to sign the 21-year-old. The Ligue 1 side have taken the youngster on loan for the campaign. And he got to make his debut for the club on Saturday.

But more questions may be asked if he can build on his debut while also staying fit for the majority of the campaign.

Here is how some of the Marseille supporters reacted to Cuisance’s display…
