A number of Leeds United fans have reacted with anger after seeing footage of a Joe Gelhardt incident from their recent Premier League game.
In their last outing, Marcelo Bielsa and co recorded an important 3-1 victory over fellow relegation candidates Burnley thanks to goals from Jack Harrison, Stuart Dallas and Dan James.
Despite the win, one moment has left the Leeds fans not so happy. With the score still 2-1 and the game in the balance, a snippet shared online by All Leeds TV shows Gelhardt challenging the Clarets’ James Tarkowski for the ball in a promising area.
The Burnley man loses out but goes to ground easily, tripping the Leeds striker in the process. In the end, a free kick was awarded against Gelhardt when it looked like he did little wrong.
It seems as if these supporters have not forgotten the controversial moment.
Here’s what these Leeds fans had to say…
“I couldn’t believe he gave Burnley the free-kick for this. And the one against Llorente for their goal. Awful officiating again yesterday. But got to be said he was awful both ways.”
Was it a foul on Joe Gelhardt?
In the end, it did not matter as Gelhardt dusted himself off and provided the assist for Leeds’ final goal of the game just moments later.
Still, had the Clarets claimed an equaliser instead, this moment would have no doubt caused huge debate amongst fans.
