Leeds boss targets Jurgen Klopp over Harvey Elliott incident

How Leeds Led A Less Than Subtle Dig On Jurgen Klopp On The Pre-West Ham Show

Leeds United CEO Angus Kinnear had no qualms about targeting Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on the club’s final program of the day as the consequences of Harvey Elliott’s serious injury continue.

The reds struck

The name of midfielder Elliott, of course, has been at the center of the English media in recent weeks.

However, unfortunately for both Liverpool and the 18-year-old, this has happened for the wrong reasons.

Jurgen Klopp and company. He made the trip to Elland Road for a Premier League showdown with Leeds a fortnight ago, seeking a spot alongside Manchester United and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

And, when all was said and done in West Yorkshire, this is precisely what the Reds accomplished, courtesy of a well-deserved 3-0 victory.

However, putting a major brake on a good day at work for Liverpool was a serious injury suffered by the aforementioned Elliott.

After what appeared on the first viewing as a rather innocuous challenge from Leeds’s Pascal Struijk in the middle of the park, it quickly became clear that Elliott had fared worse.

In turn, after a prolonged stoppage in the game, midfield talent was carried off the court on a stretcher, amid deep concern from players, fans and coaching staff alike.

It was later confirmed that Elliott suffered an ankle dislocation on Elland Road, forcing the 18-year-old to undergo surgery:

‘Humble request …’

However, as described above, the consequences of Elliott’s injury did not end there.

Leeds, due to the clear lack of intention in Struijk’s challenge, quickly launched an appeal to the Premier League, in an attempt to overturn the defender’s 3-match ban.

But the Whites’ efforts were ultimately rebuffed, forcing Struijk to miss his team’s last three games.

And, if the latest comments from the Leeds CEO are anything to go by, then obviously at least some element of resentment remains.

In the column section of the club’s last day program, prior to his meeting with West Ham United, Peacocks board member Angus Kinnear made clear his feelings that Jurgen Klopp played a central role in the initial decision that Struijk receive his marching orders two. weeks ago.

Kinnear began:

“ I think we made a compelling case, an entry that was not even considered a foul by any of the umpires, the opposing players and a crowd of 37,000 could be viewed retrospectively as a dismissal based on an assessment of the severity of the offense. injury.’

“One of the panel of three agreed that there is an inherent risk to a player’s well-being in each challenge and therefore the tackle was not serious foul play.”

“On the contrary, the two remaining delegates disagreed.”

“They argued that this was an obvious refereeing error and that it may have inadvertently set a precedent that any serious injury that occurs during physical contact should be followed through with disciplinary action.”

However, the taunt in question reached its conclusion, with the Leeds boss adding:

“Following the panel’s decision, we were left with no other recourse than to humbly ask the Premier League that rival head coaches not be selected to officiate more of our games for the remainder of this season.”
