We’re delighted to welcome former Premier League referee Keith Hackett to the MOT Leeds News team. Each week, Hackett will discuss the big moments from the latest Leeds United games and deliver his verdict on whether his successors got their calls right or wrong…

Keith Hackett has called for the FA to step in after Hwang-Hee Chan caused mayhem as Leeds United beat Wolves 2-1 on Saturday afternoon.

The ex-FIFA referee admitted that the attacker tarnished the image of the game as he tried to get Marc Roca sent off by holding his face despite there being limited contact.

It led to carnage in the Elland Road stands and Jesse Marsch was far from happy with what he saw from his former attacker after working together at RB Salzburg.

“On this one, the FA has got to come in on that,” he exclusively told MOT Leeds News.

“This tarnishes the image of the game, and no wonder the Leeds United manager went a bit spare, and probably instigated the comments that the Wolves manager referred to.

“He’s trying to get a player sent off, I think the FA should pull him on that.”


This isn’t the first time that a match with Wolves has threatened to boil over both on and off the pitch.

Hwang couldn’t have made it clearer that he was feigning an injury, but the officials still fell for it hook, line and sinker, yet there was no caution for Roca.

If the FA doesn’t start interfering when incidents such as these happen, they are only going to keep on happening and will most likely get worst and more ridiculous.

Unfortunately, it is getting worse in the Premier League and the image it gives off is embarrassing at times.

If change is to happen and the image of the game is to remain strong, the FA simply have to do something quickly, and it will likely start by making an example of one player.
