'Brilliant': Some Leeds fans react as Angus Kinnear aims dig at £316k-a-week Liverpool man
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.
What happened after Leeds 0-3 Liverpool?
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.
There always seems to be something happening when Liverpool arrive at Elland Road.
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…

Top trolling from Angus!
“opposing head coaches are not chosen to officiate” is a brilliant line 👏🏻— SJB (@SJB_upnorth) September 25, 2021
As he should. Sick of the bosses and staff of the supposed top Clubs thinking they can do as they please. That said it’s up to the officials to not pander to them. Horrible injury granted but there was no foul and now we’re short at the back— Adam Room (@AdamRoom17) September 25, 2021
Brilliant as ever. We are fortunate to have him.— Smokin Joe (@smokinjoe8487) September 25, 2021
