'Reminds me of Woodgate': Leeds fans discuss Pascal Struijk's season
Leeds United have enjoyed quite the return to the top flight following their lengthy absence, with a top-half finish firmly in their sights.
Marcelo Bielsa has managed to keep to his principles that got Leeds out of the Championship. And rather than tire like so many predicted, the Whites have, arguably, got stronger as the season has progressed forward.
There are so many players in this Leeds team who deserve credit. The usual suspects like Patrick Bamford, Raphinha, and Stuart Dallas get regular praise from the the Elland Road faithful. But one man who often slips under the radar is young defender, Pascal Struijk.
Struijk, 21, has been outstanding at times and has proved a valuable squad player for Bielsa. His ability to play at the back or in midfield has been perfect for the Leeds boss. And while far from the finished article, the club have certainly got a future star on their hands it seems.
Leeds fans, then, have been discussing Struijk’s performances this season on Twitter. The club posed the question to its supporters over the weekend, and it’s safe to say that Whites supporters are impressed with Struijk. Here’s a look at what was said.
And only 21 he reminds me so much of Woodgate when he burst into the leeds team .

The last time I got excited about player like him was watching Batty, then Phillips…….. he’s that good

he is the future.. since his booking at the start of the season he has come on leaps and bounds. i think as long as leeds dont sell him he can become a massive part of the leeds future

Massive potential and been awesome so far this season. Just needs to get over the issue of his head turning in to a 50p when in the opposition box. 😉

He gets better with every game, pity he put the great chance wide, I’d love to see him score and he’s going to be some player

He’s impressed me a lot and playing in the back four is where he needed to be. He will only get better.

He is going to be an absolute animal of a defender, he has everything in his locker, heading, distribution of the ball, takes no prisoners that’s for sure #lufc
