Already having a tough start to the season at AS Roma after joining them on loan from Leeds United, Rasmus Kristensen’s run of disappointing performances was extended on Sunday night.

Called up as an emergency substitute by Kasper Hjulmand after an injury to Alexander Bah, the news was a shining light in a dark few weeks for the player, but he didn’t manage to take advantage of it.

The Leeds loanee was actually handed a start for his country against Finland, but what happened on the pitch wasn’t pretty, as explained by Tipsbladet.

The outlet rate each performance by the Denmark players, and waste no time in criticising the right-back, giving him a 1/5 rating.

They point out that the man on loan at AS Roma from Leeds is currently the third choice in the hierarchy for his country and ‘you kind of understand that’.

The defender was booked after 12 minutes, which ‘set the tone’ for the rest of the games before he was substituted in the 80th minute.

Tipsbladet explain that the remaining 68 minutes of his performance after the booking were ‘filled with misplaced passes and poor decisions’.

This won’t be what Leeds will want to be hearing, since the entire aim of the loan to Roma was for him to do well and impress in hope of either integrating him back into the squad at Elland Road next season if promotion is achieved or just selling him on.

Ekstrabladet don’t feel he did much better either, as they give him a 2/5 stars rating, starting it all off with ‘Phew’.

They add he ‘didn’t fare too well’ and generally ‘struggled at both ends’ of the pitch.
