Gary Lineker reacts to Leeds United disallowed offside goal v West Ham

Gary Lineker has delivered a strong reaction on Twitter after Mateusz Klich goal was disallowed during West Ham v Leeds United clash at the London Stadium on Sunday (16 January) in the Premier League.

Leeds took a deserved 2-1 lead at the break. West Ham restored parity in the second half, but Jack Harrison scored again to complete his hat-trick.

Klich appeared to have given a 4-2 lead but after a VAR check, it was ruled offside.

Lineker tweeted: “The offside laws need a rethink.”


Once again Raphinha was outstanding and he was at the heart of every Leeds move.

The Whites were defending but the Brazilian was out through on the break.

He took the ball down the flank, eased past the challenge to get into the box before cutting back to Klich who smashed it home.

However, after a VAR check, it was disallowed as the ball appears to have hit the arm of Rodrigo, who was in an offside position.

The decision also sparked a reaction among others, with Liam Cooper, not playing today, took to Twitter to criticise the decision.

It’s a massive win for Leeds who have now picked up back-to-back victories in the Premier League.

The Whites, however, will sweat on the fitness of Junior Firpo and Adam Forshaw, and it could force Marcelo Bielsa to dip into the transfer market.
