Leeds official account blasts Aaron Wan-Bissaka for injuring Helder Costa
Leeds United official Twitter account slammed Aaron Wan-Bissaka for a challenge that left Helder Costa injured.
The incident occurred in the second half and the winger was later forced off, and he was visibly distressed as he hobbled off the pitch.
Leeds were unhappy with what Wan-Bissaka did, likening his challenge to a well-known wrestling move.

The tweet said, “After being suplexed by Wan Bissaka and taking an injury to his back, Costa is replaced Klich.”
It was a game of little quality and Helder Costa did not contribute much before being substituted.
He did deserve a free kick for Wan-Bissaka’s challenge however, and we do not know why Craig Pawson decided to play on.
That decision angered Patrick Bamford too, who was booked for dissent after questioning why the ref did not blow up.
It was not the only contentious decision in the match either, as the Whites could and perhaps should have been given a penalty after the ball struck Luke Shaw’s arm in the area.
The game had little quality though and the Whites can only blame themselves for not picking up three points – the win was there for the taking.
However, a draw and clean sheet represents a marked improvement on the last time we played our rivals, when we lost 6-2.
In home games against each of the big six we have not lost, and that is a record to be proud of.
We are improving game after game and if we turn these draws into wins next year we could challenge for the European qualification places.
