England second-tier manager Leeds United stunned fans and players on Sunday when he allowed Aston Villa to score an undisputed goal after Leeds had a controversial opening match Premier League.
The match ended in chaos in the 72nd minute when Villa striker Jonathan Kodjia injured in midfield. Instead of putting the ball out of the game – as is traditionally the case with an opponent – Leeds continues to attack instead of putting the ball out of play, which means a slight goal for midfielder Mateusz Klich.
NOTRE LADY TO HOST COMPETITIVE SOCCER FIRST MATCH FIGHT
The angry Villa players confronted their rivals with a mass brawl.
When the two teams collided, capturing heads and pulling jerseys, the Leeds striker Patrick Bamford persuaded the hit The Face, which falls to the ground during a fight with Villa Anwar El Ghazi. The referee drew a red card for El Ghazi and sent the player off the field.
When the mood eased and Villa was ready to continue the game, Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa said his team should strike a balance in the spirit of sportsmanship. Villa marched into the open net, scoring one goal, with the exception of Leeds defender Pontus Jansson, who scored the only goal in the 77th minute.
