Leeds fined £20,000 for failing to control their players vs Chelsea

1 min read

Leeds have been fined £20,000 for failing to control their players during a stormy defeat at Chelsea earlier this month.

Several Leeds players surrounded referee Chris Kavanagh after he awarded an injury-time penalty against them for a foul by Mateusz Klich on Antonio Rudiger in the Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on 11 December.

Jorginho subsequently scored – his second spot-kick success of the match – to secure a 3-2 victory for the home side.

Further controversy then followed when a melee involving players of both sides broke out near the touchline after the final whistle.

Leeds pleaded guilty to an FA charge and accepted a standard punishment.

A statement from the FA read: “Leeds United FC has been fined £20,000 for a breach of FA Rule E20.1 that took place during the 93rd minute of its Premier League match against Chelsea FC on Saturday December 11, 2021.

“Leeds United FC admitted to failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion when they surrounded the match referee, and accepted the standard penalty.”

  1. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
