'I'm going to be honest' – Bamford opens up on controversial moment in Leeds clash v Spurs
Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has said that Tottenham were hard done to in the 3-1 defeat after Harry Kane’s goal was ruled out for offside.
Bamford was talking on the Official Leeds United Podcast ahead of the clash against Burnley on Saturday.
However, he said that was the only moment in the game when he felt Leeds were under any pressure.
“It was comfortable,” said Bamford.
“Only when the Harry Kane goal went in. I’m going to be honest, I thought it was miles offside at first, I was like I don’t know what they’re waiting so long about.
“And then… turns out they were a little bit hard done to. It was a nice finish.”
Change the rules
VAR worked for Leeds last Saturday.
But it’s worked against Leeds on a number of occasions this season and it will do again.
It doesn’t matter whether a decision like this goes for or against Leeds, as football fans we should be lobbying for the rules to change.
There are plenty of options for VAR – the one the Premier League have decided is fit for purpose is very different to ones used in other countries.
In the Bundesliga, they have a margin for error that works in favour of the attacking side.
That’s what we want. Clear daylight between the lines or a margin of error that means that brilliant goals like Kane’s or Bamford’s earlier in the season aren’t chalked off.
