Some Leeds fans laud Llorente after WhoScored team of the month inclusion
Some Leeds United fans were over the moon after Diego Llorente was included in WhoScored.com’s Premier League team of the month for April.
The defender enjoyed a standout month for the Whites, featuring in all four of the Whites’ games as the outfit went unbeaten. Llorente also scored for Marcelo Bielsa’s team during the 1-1 draw against Liverpool, heading home the equaliser late on to deny the Reds a victory.
He was roundly praised for his display against Jurgen Klopp’s men last month with journalist Graham Smyth lauding the center-half for his risk-taking ability.
Llorente has endured an injury-plagued debut season at Elland Road with groin and hamstring issues restricting the Spaniard to just 13 appearances across the first-team and under-23s.
His move from La Liga side Real Sociedad cost the club £18m, however, the ace is starting to show exactly why the club shelled out the money.
From his ball-playing ability to his astute defending, Llorente is a well-rounded player, who adds a ton of quality to the Leeds backline.
Fans were elated by his inclusion as they took to Twitter to laud him…
