Leeds United defender Ben White gained a bit of attention earlier this week for his antics in the 1-1 draw against Brentford at Griffin Park.
With Leeds attacking a corner in the second half, the on-loan Brighton defender appeared to try and take the gloves off Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.
Sky Sports’ cameras caught the incident and it was uploaded to their website in a video.
On Thursday, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa was asked about the incident, but the Argentine claims that he failed to spot what happened and even if he did, it is not something that would have concerned him.
“I ignore all that, I don’t know. I didn’t see it,” he said in a press conference ahead of the clash with Bristol City this weekend, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
It was a bit cheeky from White but there was no harm caused by it – mainly because Leeds’ corner did not carry any threat to it.
But imagine the uproar there would have been if Leeds scored from that corner because Raya was too busy trying to re-strap his glove back to his hand?
You’ve no doubt that the EFL and FA would have gotten themselves involved – as they always seem to do when it comes to Leeds United.
It was probably a good thing that nothing came of White doing that just because of the media storm that would have followed it.
Still, it is funny to see a clip of and it will be interesting to see if anyone tries it again in the near future.
In other Leeds United news, Bielsa has suggested who his third-choice striker might be after Patrick Bamford and Jean-Kevin Augustin.
