Leeds fans react on Twitter to Joe Gelhardt training clip

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react after a clip was posted on social media showing Joe Gelhardt nearly scoring a screamer in training.

It is no secret that Gelhardt is one of the most exciting prospects on Leeds’ books. The 18-year-old has been the standout performer for an under-23 side enjoying an incredible campaign.

In some ways, it is remarkable that Gelhardt has not yet made his first-team debut. But he does seem to be edging closer to that senior bow.

And moments of magic on the training ground will do his chances no harm at all. Thankfully, Gelhardt seems to have produced yet another recently.

A clip was posted on social media by LUFC Youth showing Gelhardt nearly scoring an outrageous goal.

The forward receives the ball near the halfway line in a small-sided game. With his back to goal, he flicks the ball up before turning and striking a thunderous volley.

The ball narrowly misses the top corner and smashes into the bar.

Unlike the legendary Tony Yeboah strikes however, the ball does not end up in the back of the net after hitting the woodwork – but that has not stopped supporters lauding the teenager.

Many have once again expressed their excitement about his potential. And they have implored Marcelo Bielsa to give him a chance before the campaign concludes.

With that in mind, here is the tweet which includes the clip of the goal, as well as some of the best replies…
