Leeds United fans react to Charlie Cresswell’s match-winning debut brace for Millwall

The Whites’ fanbase are already licking their lips at the prospect of Cresswell becoming a regular feature at Elland Road.


Those of a Leeds United persuasion have taken to social media in their droves on Saturday, to respond to the match-winning efforts of loanee Charlie Cresswell.

For those not aware, highly-regarded youngster Cresswell was farmed out on a temporary basis earlier this month.

In a bid to secure more regular first-team football to aid in his ongoing development, the defender opted to link up with Championship outfit Millwall for the 2022/23 campaign.

Cresswell, in turn, was afforded his competitive debut for the Lions earlier today, when Gary Rowett’s troops kicked their season into gear in a league meeting with Stoke City.

And to say that the 19-year-old’s bow proved one to remember would be putting it lightly.

Not only did Cresswell play his part in holding Stoke at bay across the entirety of the 90 minutes, but also bagged both of Millwall’s goals, en route to a 2-0 triumph.

In turn, it should not come as a huge surprise to hear of their young defender’s exploits piquing widespread attentions across Leeds’ fanbase on Saturday.

Taking to the comments section of Millwall’s victory post on Twitter, the Peacocks faithful have been full of praise for Cresswell, with with many already expressing their excitement with the prospect of seeing the England youth international back plying his trade in west Yorkshire from next season on:
