Plenty of Leeds fans have disagreed with Marcelo Bielsa’s decision to let Aston Villa score on Sunday, and those fans will absolutely love something Paul Robinson spotted during all the chaos.
Leeds and Aston Villa seem destined to meet in the play-off final at Wembley. The pair are currently set to face Derby County and West Brom respectively.
Leeds’ potential opponents, the Rams, have a knack of falling at the play-off hurdle, while the Baggies are shrouded in uncertainty after the sacking of Darren Moore.
And if Sunday’s 1-1 draw between the Whites and Villans is anything to go by, then their possible showdown at Wembley could be one for the ages.
Robinson, who works as a pundit for Sky Sports, picked up on something that has barely been mentioned amongst all the debate over whether the ball should have been kicked out or not in the build-up to the opening goal – Mateusz Klich was offside.
“When you see it in the replay, I don’t think it is a foul (on Kodjia). And then they (Leeds) are in a real predicament here. He (Roberts) looks as though he’s going to put it out and then he sees the balls on. I think the linesman gets it wrong because I actually think he’s offside (Klich),” he told Sky Sports Football (28/04/2019).
It does appear that Klich was marginally offside, and those Leeds fans who were against the decision to let Villa score will surely only love the fact that this is yet another aspect of the memorable incident that will annoy Villa fans.
