Leeds United fans are thrilled with the £13 million player’s progress, as he has finally gained Daniel Farke’s trust.
Junior Firpo has been the subject of considerable criticism from Leeds United supporters over the past two seasons, mostly for two reasons. He was out of shape and could never stay accessible.
However, Leeds has won four straight games in the past four games. Firpo has started each of the last four in that period, suggesting that he may have finally overcome his injury problems. Three of the four league games, an incredible four assists.
Perhaps at last, Firpo is performing at the level Leeds may have anticipated from him when he initially joined the team from Barcelona. But in the Championship, at least. However, in a way that lets him play to his advantages.
Rather than facing criticism for his defensive capabilities, Daniel Farke’s system makes use of his strongest suit, which is his ability to move forward and produce from the left wing. SPORT released an analysis on the defender.

Daniel Farke, the manager of Leeds, has finally come to trust Junior Firpo.
Leeds is reportedly “delighted” with this upgraded Firpo version. Additionally, they claim that after failing to win Firpo’s faith at Elland Road, the left-back has now “earned the trust” of his manager.
Nor are his forms going undetected. This week’s reports state that Real Sociedad is considering a move for Firpo because of their need for a left defender following Aihan Munoz’s injury. It follows his incredible performance on Sunday.
Neil Redfearn says it was one of his best performances wearing a Leeds shirt. It would be intriguing to see whether Leeds signs a new left-back and if the £13 million player can maintain his level of play.
