Loads of Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media after the club announced that Pawel Cibicki has joined Pogon Szczecin on a permanent deal.
The 26-year-old had spent the first half of the season on loan with Eredivisie outfit ADO Den Haag, but struggled to establish himself at the Kyocera Stadium under boss Alfons Groenendijk prior to the Dutchman’s sacking in December.
Cibicki featured for just 122 minutes under Groenedijk over four appearances in all competitions, with his last Dutch top-flight outing coming in late September as De Haag lost 3-0 to FC Emmen in his sole start for De Ooievaars.
Did Cibicki deserve a chance under Bielsa?
Cibicki rarely featured at Elland Road before moving to Molde FK on loan having made 10 appearances, with a subsequent spell with IF Elfsborg for the latter half of last season.
We had been linked with potentially selling Cibicki in the winter 2019 market, and again in the summer, after manager Marcelo Bielsa deemed the forward surplus to requirements following his appointment to the helm in West Yorkshire.
He now departs on a permanent deal following rumoured interest from League One sides.
Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to Cibicki’s permanent departure…
