Leeds fans are fuming with the EFL after Hourihane decision

Leeds United fans on Twitter are fuming with the EFL after Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane was let off scot-free despite seemingly punching Mateusz Klich during an altercation between the two players on Sunday.

Supporters of the Yorkshire club haven’t hidden their frustrations with the EFL claiming that the governing body is “corrupt” and a “joke”, responding to a post by Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay.

Whites chairman Andrea Radrizzani was also baffled by the decision and he took to Twitter to share his surprise.

Whilst the Irish midfielder escaped any punishment, Patrick Bamford received a two-game ban for his alleged dive during Sunday’s game.

This could have huge ramifications come the end of the season as both teams are playoff bound, with Bamford set to miss the first leg of Leeds’ semi-final clash whilst Hourihane will be available for the Midlands club.

The Elland Road faithful have held grievances with the EFL for years and just this season their club has fallen foul of them.

They were fined £200,000 for Spygate as well as £5,000 for a touchline incident against Bolton Wanderers.

Here’s what Leeds fans have been saying on Twitter…
