Leeds fans confused at Rafa Mujica departure on loan

Leeds United have loaned out young attacker Rafa Mujica to Spanish second-tier outfit Extremadura – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are puzzled over the move.

The Whites confirmed (official website) that the 20-year-old has joined them on a season-long loan.

He only made a switch to Elland Road at the beginning of June after his contract at Barcelona expired, but will continue his development away from Elland Road.

Mujica played for Barcelona reserve team last season, who play in the third-tier of Spanish football, and had a decent record for them.

The centre-forward netted seven times in 33 games for them and made the move to England this summer.

But the Spanish striker has now secured a return to his homeland on loan and the Yorkshire club clearly feel it’s the best step in his career.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media are confused over the decision to loan out Mujica so soon after signing him and some feel there may be something odd going on behind the scenes.

His path into the first-team is blocked by attackers Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah, while Kun Temenuzhkov and Ryan Edmondson are strikers currently performing for the Under-23s side.

Here are some Leeds fans on Mujica’s loan exit:
