Image for Leeds United: Fans furious as VAR claim emerges

A lot of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to voice their frustration following Saturday’s refereeing display in their game against Watford. 

Journalist Dale Johnson shared his thoughts on the performances of referee Simon Hooper and VAR Lee Mason, with William Troost-Ekong’s challenge on Daniel in the penalty area one of the main talking points.

Were Leeds robbed of a penalty on Saturday?





Johnson claimed Marcelo Bielsa’s side should have been awarded a penalty in the weekend’s game, with the Nigerian defender showing ‘no intention to play the ball’ against James.

Leeds fans flocked to the tweet from the ESPN journalist to share their disgust in the weekend’s refereeing performance in the game against the Hornets.

What did these Leeds fans have to say?

“VAR is baffling”

“Something has to change! What is the point of VAR?”

Bielsa’s men recorded their first win of season despite the questionable refereeing decisions as they dragged themselves out of the bottom three and into 1 spot.

With just one goal separating the sides on the weekend, it is apparent these fans were left far from impressed with Hooper’s decision not to award them a penalty on Saturday.
