Matt Kilgallon told BBC Radio Leeds that Brenden Aaronson is in danger of being dropped from the Leeds United team as he is “not doing enough”.
Kilgallon was critical of the 22-year old’s performance against Brentford, particular unhappy with how careless he was with the ball:
“I like him. But for the first 10 minutes, he started pretty sloppily to be honest, gave the ball away. And I think the fans did actually notice that,” he told BBC Radio Leeds.
“But one thing about him, he gives 100 percent, doesn’t he. He’s busy, he’s there. But I think you need more. He’s going to end up losing the shirt because there’s people there now waiting to go play.”
The midfielder was brought in by Jesse Marsch this summer for a reported £24.7 million. Aaronson started the season well, providing a goal and an assist in his first five games in the league. However the American has only managed to provide one assist since then, and has had zero goal involvments since the World Cup. With the form of other attackers like Gnonto, and Rodrigo, Aaronson is in real danger of losing his spot in Marsch’s XI.
