Pierre-Michel Lasogga isn’t a name that will live too long in the memory of too many Leeds United supporters.
Although the German talisman showed glimpses of his quality during a loan spell at Elland Road last season, they were all too infrequent.
These days Lasogga is playing in the German second tier with Hamburg.
The 2018/19 campaign is actually proving quite fruitful for the big target man.
In 21 games in all competitions, the 27-year-old has netted 16 goals to propel Hamburg into promotion contention.
During his time in West Yorkshire, he netted 10 goals but was largely off the boil during his loan spell.
Lasogga failed to score during the last 10 games he played for the Whites and there was often a sense that he was bigger than the club in the player’s eyes.
The striker adhered himself to Hamburg supporters yesterday by netting twice in the big derby with St Pauli.
His brace gave his team the catalyst to secure a 4-0 win and etched his name into Hamburg folklore.
Leeds fans naturally couldn’t believe their eyes.
They took to Twitter to offer their thoughts on Lasogga and vent their frustration that they never saw such prowess at Elland Road.
We rounded up the best of what Leeds fans were saying after Lasogga showed his worth in yesterday’s game.
Lasogga has just scored the opener in the Hamburg Derby and consequently ran the length of the pitch to celebrate with the Hamburg fans. How? I don’t know #LUFC
