Leeds' Twitter Account Calls Out Pundit Who Claims They Were “Promoted Because Of Covid-19”

Leeds United's Twitter account has called out Amazon Prime pundit Karen Carney after she said the club were "promoted because of Covid-19."

Marcelo Bielsa's side romped to a 5-0 over West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday evening, with their intensity on and off the ball being a key talking point.

Carney spoke after the game and said: "They outrun everyone and credit to them. My only concern would be, will they blow up at the end of the season like the last couple of seasons.

"I actually think they got promoted because of Covid in terms of it giving them a bit of respite. I don't know if they'd have got up if they didn't have that break."

Romaine Sawyers' 'No-Look' Own Goal For West Brom Vs Leeds Is The Weirdest Of The Season

published at24 days ago

A bizarre Romaine Sawyers own goal set Leeds off against the Baggies before Ezgjan Alioski, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo made it 4-0 before half-time.

The second half saw less goalmouth action, but Raphinha managed to bend in a lovely fifth to seal victory.

Leeds are up to 11th in the table, while West Brom remain in the relegation zone.
