A few United fans were buzzing to see the return of Jordan Stevens after his six-week ban for breaking betting .

The FA decided that the 19-year-old should be banned for six weeks form all football-related activity – which meant that not only could he not play any football, but he also was not allowed to train.

This seemed a very harsh punishment for a young midfielder who had made a silly mistake, and instead of giving him help, the FA decided to essentially lock him in his house for 42 days.

It was a strange way to treat a 19-year-old.

Monday night saw him make his return for the youth , and he turned in a composed display against Burnley, where he completed 92.8% of his passes.

This has delighted many Leeds fans.

Other Whites supporters were just pleased to have Stevens back from his ridiculous ban.

One fan was so keen to see Stevens that they even asked for match footage.

What do we think?

Stevens was treated very harshly by the FA, and though they have strict rules about betting, the 19-year-old was not the support he needed and was instead treated like a child.

It was good to see that he performed well for the Under-23s, especially considering the fact some first-team players were involved.

He is now in the best place to learn from his mistakes and hopefully progress his career with Leeds.
