Just Joe football show host Joe Wainman believes that having Junior Firpo and Jack Harrison down the left-side is going to be frightening!

Harrison made his move to Elland Road permanent this summer after previous loan spells with Leeds and the Whites also completed the signing of left-back Junior Firpo from FC Barcelona.

Firpo featured 18 times for Barcelona in all competitions last season, whilst Harrison featured in 38 matches for Leeds in all competitions.

The duo will be frightening according Wainman, who told Football FanCast: “Junior Firpo is really exciting, I know it didn’t work out for him at Barcelona but when you’ve got Jordi Alba ahead of you it’s always going to be tough.

“We’ve paid next to nothing for him in terms of what his projections could be and look, once Bielsa has worked his magic, I think Junior Firpo from that left-back position, him and Jack Harrison this season it’ll be frightening, it’s going to be frightening!

“I see a lot of goals coming from that left hand side and I think Junior Firpo will get involved and he’ll get quite a lot of assists as well.”

Marcelo Bielsa has looked to strengthen his Leeds side this summer and provide competition for places in his starting XI, signing both Lewis Bate and Kristoffer Klaesson alongside Junior Firpo and Jack Harrison.

The White enjoyed a successful first season back in the Premier League finishing ninth on 59 points and ended the season in good form winning their last four matches, conceding just two goals in the process.

Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping to take that form into the new season and hit the ground running early and look to improve on last points tally and final position.
