Luciano Becchio reacts on Twitter to controversial moment in Leeds defeat v Fulham

The Leeds United Twitter admin was clearly not impressed with the penalty decision in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Fulham on Saturday.

Aleksandar Mitrovic put Fulham ahead with a spot-kick after Ben White was adjudged to have fouled Bobby Reid in the penalty area.

However there was barely any contact in the supposed foul and Leeds’ official Twitter account decided to take a swipe on Sunday with a tweet that defines what a contact sport is.

Ex-Leeds forward Luciano Becchio has since reacted to that video with a few emojis that show he was baffled by the referee’s decision to award Fulham the penalty.

It was really bizarre that was given as a penalty and it is so frustrating that it ended up being what decided the game.

Leeds were by no means at their best but they did not really deserve to walk away from Craven Cottage empty-handed.

Defeat for Leeds saw West Brom extend their lead at the top by an extra point while third-place is now only eight points behind the Whites.

It is not time to panic yet but awful officiating like this does not help Leeds’ bid to return to the Premier League in any way at all.

In other Leeds United news, this rarely-seen teenager is set to become more of an option for Bielsa.
