Leeds United Remove 'Fan Image' Of Osama Bin Laden From Elland Road

Leeds United have removed an image of Osama Bin Laden from Elland Road, after an eagle-eye spotted himself beside the former Al-Qaeda leader.

The Yorkshire club, in the absence of fans being allowed to attend matches, have asked fans to create 'Crowdie' images to fill Elland Road for a fee of £25. In an image which circulated around Twitter, Leeds fans saw something amiss with one of their 'Crowdie' images.

The 'Crowdie' image of Bin Laden isn't the first time that these crowd images have led to hijinks. In Australia, a crowd image of disgraced British political advisor Dominic Cummings was found sampling an NRL match.

Leeds quietly removed the image of Bin Laden, stating that they "will ensure there are no more offensive images".

Leeds have at least five remaining home games in the Championship, with the club stating that up to 15,000 Crowdie image will be in place until the end of the season.
