Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to react after seeing what Angus Kinnear wrote about Jürgen Klopp in his programme notes.

What’s the story?

Well, ahead of the clash with West Ham, Kinnear discussed what happened to Harvey Elliott at Elland Road when Leeds lost 3-0 to the Reds.

Craig Pawson didn’t even give a foul for Pascal Struijk’s challenge initially.

However, after Klopp entered the pitch, a red card was issued to the Dutchman, which Kinnear clearly feels was influenced by the German.

He wrote: ‘Following the panel’s decision we were left with no other recourse than to humbly request to the Premier League that opposing head coaches are not selected to officiate any more of our games for the remainder of the season.’

Now, you can understand why the Leeds fans love this.

One thing you can be sure of at Elland Road is that people don’t shy away from big talking points or perceived injustices.

They speak their mind, which can only be admired.

Eventually, Klopp wasn’t found guilty of breaching any FA rules when entering the pitch at Elland Road.

That decision was made despite the fact the FA did actually punish the £313,500-a-week man for running onto the pitch against Everton in 2018.

Clearly, there’s been a bit of inconsistency here.

Last season, Liverpool’s visit to Yorkshire came amid the Super League fiasco, with Leeds leaving shirts in the away dressing room mocking Liverpool’s decision to join it.

Since Leeds were promoted, it has been an interesting spectacle when the Reds travel to Elland Road.

For now, let’s see what the Leeds fans on Twitter have been saying about Kinnear’s comments about Klopp…
