Right or wrong? Leeds fans split on Marcelo Bielsa’s act of sportsmanship

Leeds fans on Twitter are torn over whether or not Marcelo Bielsa made the right decision in allowing Aston Villa to walk through and score an equaliser, after he watched his own players score whilst a Villa player was down injured.

Of course, it wasn’t a head injury to Jonathan Kodjia, so the Leeds players had every right not to kick the ball out. However, a number of Villa players had stopped playing as Mateusz Klich ran through to net the opener, which sparked fury from Dean Smith’s men.

Are fans being priced out of the Championship as well as the Premier League? The angry Bolton fan in the video below certainly believes so…

After the incident and resulting scenes of anger, Bielsa instructed his team to give Villa an equaliser, a message that all of his players except Pontus Jansson received – the Swede tried to tackle Albert Adomah as he approached the goal.

Now, as aforesaid, Leeds didn’t have to kick the ball out, so some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have questioned why Bielsa let them run through to score, whilst others have praised the Argentine’s sportsmanship – the fanbase really is split on the matter…
