A lot of Leeds United fans are mocking Hull City after they claimed that Patrick Bamford deliberately ran into the Tigers’ goalkeeper George Long – before Ezgjan Alioski slotted in the Whites’ second goal.

Footage from behind the goal has revealed that Bamford was not aware of where Long was and, therefore, could not have run into him on purpose.

Should Lichaj apologise to Bamford?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This has led to many Leeds fans mocking Long for his overreaction.

Other Whites supporters, though, are annoyed that Hull’s captain Eric Lichaj has not apologised to Bamford for publicly ridiculing him.

What do we think?

Immediately after the match, Lichaj told the press that he felt Long was hurt deliberately by Bamford and that he could not believe a fellow professional would do that to another.

Luckily for Bamford, though, the footage from behind the goal shows that the 26-year-old striker barely even touched Long and the minimal contact was accidental.

This has led to some rather harsh jokes aimed at Hull’s goalkeeper from some Leeds fans.

Lichaj, however, should publicly apologise to Bamford – as what he said was based on no evidence, and the footage actually shows that there was barely any contact and that the whole incident was accidental.
