Leeds United defender Junior Firpo has texted Jack Harrison in response to what he done in the last 24 hours.
The 26-year-old, who is on loan at Everton, made his Premier League debut against Aston Villa in a 2-1 Carabao Cup triumph on Wednesday (27 September).
The midfielder said he was “happy” to make his debut and thanked the Toffees fans for their support on Instagram, to which Firpo replied with “Superman” and a fire emoji.
The response from Firpo to Harrison’s post could be a bit controversial to some Leeds fans after a number of them were unhappy at the latter’s decision to leave the club.
He was keen to continue playing at the highest level and, after impressing for the Whites in the Premier League, an opportunity opened up for him to join Everton on loan.
With the Toffees holding an option-to-buy clause in his deal, it’s unlikely he will play for the West Yorkshire club again if the Merseysiders decide to sign him permanently.
Firpo is another player who splits fans, as the Dominican has had a mixed season after moving to Elland Road from Barcelona in 2021.
However, the 27-year-old, who has yet to play this season due to injury, is working his way back to health and will be expecting to be given the chance to prove his worth whenever he returns.
