Did Leeds United make a mistake letting Marcus Antonsson go on loan to Blackburn?
The on-loan striker has scored eight goals for Blackburn Rovers, as the Lancashire club looks to climb its way back into the Championship. While the level of competition is different, Antonsson’s goal scoring record is impressive, especially considering the influx of striking options brought into the club after the sale of Chris Wood that have yet to impress.
It appears that there is no recall option in the loan deal, so Leeds can’t even bring him back in January now that he’s caught fire elsewhere. Maybe this is the player that Leeds thought they were buying two summers ago, as he seems to have adjusted to playing in England and is scoring goals.
Anyway, on to the links.
