Leeds United: Fans fume at Steve Cooper’s comments

Image for Leeds United: Fans fume at Steve Cooper’s comments

Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report containing comments made by Swansea manager Steve Cooper regarding the Whites’ Premier League credentials.

Following Leeds’ dramatic late winner against the Welsh side last weekend – which saw United stretch their lead at the top of the table and kept Swansea City a point outside the play-off places – Cooper admitted that Leeds were ‘obviously a good team‘, however, he continued to say: ‘whether it’s enough to get them out of this league and then compete in the Premier League, I’m not too sure.’

Nice easy one to start off with, from which club did Leeds sign Hernandez?

After the article containing his comments was relayed on Twitter by the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Leeds United News account, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many slamming the Swansea boss for his comments.

Following the club’s dramatic victory over Swansea – in which Pablo Hernandez scored an 89th-minute winner – should Brentford fail to win their fixture against Preston North End on Wednesday, Leeds can go on to secure promotion to the Premier League on Thursday with a better result against bottom-of-the-table Barnsley.

As such, Cooper’s comments regarding whether Leeds have ‘enough to get them out of this league’ seem a little bit understated, as their victory against Cooper’s side has potentially moved them to within one victory from promotion.

Are you confident that Leeds United will earn promotion to the Premier League for next season?
