Leeds fans react on Twitter to Liam Cooper display vs Wolves
A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Liam Cooper after the defender’s performance against Wolves on Saturday.
Leeds appear to have potentially got their campaign up and running. Rodrigo scored a stoppage-time penalty to equalise against Bruno Lage’s men.
It had looked destined to be another frustrating afternoon for the Whites. Wolves had taken the lead early on.
And while Leeds dominated much of the play, they struggled to test Jose Sa too much until the latter stages of the game. But ultimately, they were able to find another gear in the final moments.
Of course, Joe Gelhardt will take many of the headlines and plaudits. And several others certainly stepped up to help secure the point.
But many felt that Cooper was absolutely outstanding in the draw.
The centre-back has come in for plenty of criticism during his time at Elland Road. And in fairness, there have been times when he has made a costly decision.
But in recent weeks, he has arguably been one of Leeds’ best players. Certainly, he has been superb alongside Diego Llorente.
And he was colossal on Saturday. He did brilliantly up against Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore. In fact, it seemed that Adama barely got a kick.
‘Quality’: Leeds fans laud Liam Cooper after draw with Wolves
No player who started for either side had fewer touches than Adama. And the Wolves forward was unable to attempt one single dribble during the game (Whoscored).
And with that, plenty of Leeds fans have lauded Cooper. Many have insisted that he is silencing his doubters.
Certainly, the idea that he is underrated is going to need revising if he continues to impress in the weeks ahead.
Here is how some of the Leeds fans reacted to Cooper’s performance…

He won’t get the plaudits as rightly Joffy will get them but Liam Cooper what a performance 👏👏 #lufc

Say what you want about him, Cooper was immense today

Cooper was incredible. Joffy did more in 30 odd mins than any other attacker on either side did in 90.

Unreal today, been our best CB this season and is criminally underrated by a lot of our fans
