Wild Scenes As Leeds Intentionally Allow Aston Villa Score After Controversial Goal

There were incredible scenes at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon after Leeds intentionally allowed Aston Villa to score after Mateusz Klich had controversially put the home side ahead.

Klich scored with Jonathan Kodjia injured in the middle of the pitch. Aston Villa players stopped playing when it appeared as though Tyler Roberts was about to put the ball out of play to allow Kodjia to receive treatment.

Roberts instead played the ball forward with Klich scoring moments later. The game had been goalless prior to the goal.

A furious row erupted which resulted in Villa's Anwar El-Ghazi being sent-off.

That instruction was followed by all but Pontus Jansson who attempted to prevent Albert Adomah from putting the ball in the net.

The game finished 1-1.

This was the incident for which El-Ghazi was sent-off. It is one with which Patrick Bamford should look back on with shame.
