BBC reporter hits back at Leeds United fans during live coverage of Premier League clash
BBC Sports hit back at Leeds United fans on Friday evening, accusing them of “moaning” on their social media platforms.
Reporter Tom Rostance shared an image of the Premier League table and clubs chasing the Champions League positions with one month to play.
The Whites were the first club to be left out of that, and that error was defended by the claim that the image couldn’t be any bigger.
Writing during the live text coverage of Arsenal’s clash against Everton last night, Rostance hit back at the Whites fans online.
“To the Leeds fans moaning that they were left off the graphic showing the teams chasing the top four, apologies but that’s just how many teams fit in that graphic,” he wrote.
“If you want me to add Leeds in as well hang on while I do a quick HTML or graphic design course. Marcelo Bielsa’s excellent side are a point behind Arsenal in the as it stands table now.”
We’re not famous?
No matter if the Premier League clash involves Leeds or not, we are consistently mentioned at any point that we can be.
Media outlets such as the BBC will know that as soon as something includes the mighty Whites, they will get reactions, engagements and views.
Why can’t Marcelo Bielsa’s men guide us to European football?
It could happen this year with no clubs appearing to want to grasp a spot in the top-seven, although we aren’t expecting it, we all love to dream.
Bielsa has guided his side back to the big time, and we are certainly here to stay.
