YEP report details FA stance on Liam Cooper after Leeds captain swore at ball boy
Liam Cooper is not going to face any further action from the FA after the Leeds United captain apologised for swearing at a ball boy, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Cooper, 28, took to his personal Twitter account on Thursday night to offer a public apology for using bad language in front of a ball boy as Leeds lost 2-1 to Fulham at Craven Cottage last month.
The Scotland international explained his actions and shared that he sent a written apology to Fulham to be passed on to the ball boy.

The Yorkshire Evening Post now reports that Cooper will not face any kind of sanction from the FA after his posted a public apology.
It is understood that the former Hull centre-back had been “asked for his observations of the incident”.
However the matter now seems to be closed as far as the FA are concerned and that is good news for Leeds as everyone can forget about the incident and move on.
Incidents like this probably happen a lot more than we realise but are never caught by the camera or reported by a fan or the ball boy in question.
Yes, it was passion and desire that led to Cooper acting the way he did and some Leeds fans have made it very clear that they find the FA’s actions a bit pathetic.
However the defender needs to remember he is still a role model and swearing at ball boys is never going to be a good look.
