Leeds United fans on Twitter are less than impressed with Lee Johnson’s comments ahead of Bristol City’s 2019/20 opening day clash against the Whites.
The Robins’ manager had a dig at the Yorkshire club relating to the spygate scandal saying: “Me and Jamie (McAllister, assistant coach) have just rented out a two-bedroom flat overlooking Leeds’ training ground so we can get a good old view of their training!”
Although this quip may be hilarious for Bristol City supporters, it is nothing that United fans haven’t heard before.
Spygate of course, made headlines last season after Marcelo Bielsa sent someone to watch Derby County’s training sessions before the two sides met in January.
The mind games haven’t had their desired effect on the fanbase as they have completely brushed off the comments he has made, with many reacting sarcastically to the quip.
The Yorkshire club head down to Ashton Gate for their opening game of the season, but it is unlikely that the clash will be heated as Leeds fans have been unwilling to get embroiled in a war of words this time around.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
idot needs to grow up.
