These Sheffield Wednesday fans were fuming with Leeds United defender Ben White’s post-match comments.

Ben White was speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post when saying: “Obviously we did well against Arsenal and we have played like that before against a Championship side but it’s not as big because it’s not against a big side. We will just keep going.” These comments were later relayed to the Sheffield Wednesday fans via Alex Miller on Twitter.

The Owls scored two late goals in the 87th and 93rd minute to beat Leeds 2-0 away from home, which is probably why White called the game “not against a big side“, but we are not sure if that actually makes the loss any better, in fact, it could make it even worse.

Here’s what the Sheffield Wednesday fans had to say about White’s comments on Twitter:

Was Ben White's comments disrespectful?





White also called Atdhe Nuhiu a “big lump” after the 30-year-old has brought on in the 69th minute against Leeds.

These Sheffield Wednesday fans are clearly angry with White’s comments, which is no surprise given the rivalry between the two sides.

What Do We Think?

It’s hard to tell if any of White’s comments were made with spiteful intent, however, they are at least petty and shouldn’t have publicly been made.

Losing 2-0 after having 66.9% possession isn’t a good look for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, so you can see why the players would try to save face after such a defeat.
