Embarrassing: Leeds fans far from happy with Wilder’s comments after promotion

Leeds United fans on Twitter are raging after Chris Wilder’s comments about their club following confirmation that Sheffield United would be playing in the Premier League next season.

Despite it being a day of celebration for Wilder and his team he couldn’t help but go on a tirade about his closest rivals.

The Blades manager let loose his thoughts on his Yorkshire rivals whilst he was celebrating his team’s promotion to the Premier League.

Wilder said in a YouTube video on the club’s official channel.

“We’ve had one defeat in 13 and I’ve got muppets from Leeds talking about the pressure being on us.

“Bamford and (Adam) Forshaw and a couple of others. It’s over to you and this, that and the other.

“They got beat seven times since Christmas. We’ve been beaten once. We’ve set it up from Christmas to be in the race and we’ve steamrolled it.”

The Sheffield United boss held his nerve towards the end of the season, culminating in promotion to the Premier League for his club, whilst the Whites faltered at the final hurdle.

Wilder had often talked about Leeds towards the business end of the campaign. The manager has had the last laugh firing back one more time after the Blades’ triumph.

His comments touched a nerve with the Elland Road faithful as they branded him classless and embarrassing for focussing on Leeds on the proudest day of his managerial career.
