Frank Lampard Has Cheeky Dig At Leeds After Spygate Song

Frank Lampard Has Cheeky Dig At Leeds After Spygate Song

In one of their biggest games of the season at the weekend, Leeds fans produced a song to match the performance of their team.

Marcelo Bielsa's side beat Derby 1-0 at Pride Park in the first leg of their playoff semi-final on Saturday.

It was a game brimming with storylines beyond it being a battle for Premier League promotion. The encounter between the two teams back in January was preceded by the Spygate scandal which saw Bielsa admit to snooping on his opponents.

That was an occurrence which Leeds fans referenced during on Saturday with a song belted out to the tune of Oasis' 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out'.

All of the spies / Are hidden away / Just try not to worry / You'll beat us some day / We beat you at home / We beat you away / Stop crying Frank Lampard.

Questioned about the song ahead of Wednesday's second leg, Lampard had a little dig at Leeds' extended time in the second tier of English football.

"No, of course not, it is good fun," said Lampard when asked if it had affected him.

"As a Chelsea player, there was a rivalry always with Leeds. We didn't play them that much because we were in the Premier League, but that comes with it.

"I will take a song all day long. My worry is what the players do on the pitch."
