After Gary Rowett’s rather mysterious comments after the 3-2 comeback win against Millwall in which he implied that there had been pressure put on the referee by individuals from Leeds, though not coaching staff or players, it’s now revealed what went on.
Victor Orta, Leeds’ head of football, and James Mooney, Leeds’ head of communications, have been charged by the FA over separate incidents at half-time that involved the referee.
Though it’s unclear exactly the nature of the events, Orta is well known for wearing his heart on his sleeve and the club have routinely spoken of how they feel they are unfairly treated by the league officials. Andrea Radrizzani, of course, tweeted at half-time expressing his discontent with some of the decisions made by the referee, Darren England during the first-half.
Imagination and rumour will of course spread like wildfire after these charges were confirmed though it’s unlikely the club will be making any specific comment.
Perhaps one for the extras if there’s another season of the Amazon prime documentary?
