Ladbrokes apologise to Burnley after social media gaffe

Thursday, 21 Sep, 2017

"The club are aware of the problem".

It's been a terrific start to the season for Leeds, who sit atop the Championship table with five wins and two draws from eight league games this season.

All Whites' striker Chris Wood came off the bench to score his third goal in four games for Burnley this morning, but Wood's former side Leeds got the last laugh, winning on penalties in today's League Cup knockout clash.

Former Elland Road pair Wood and Taylor faced an early reunion with Leeds fans during the tie at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

Ladbrokes, who only a month ago came on board as Burnley's "official United Kingdom betting partner", tweeted the raised middle-finger along with the words "Yours sincerely, Leeds fans #LUFC". "We have contacted Ladbrokes and are awaiting a full response", the club said in a statement.

Getafe , which has won only one of its four games, led through Japanese midfielder Gaku Shibasaki just before halftime. Getafe remain on four points and have now gone 10 LaLiga matches without a home win, despite a courageous performance.

"It was only meant to be a bit of fun but failed completely in that regard, and we have apologised to Burnley FC and would like to sincerely apologise to any fans of the club that took offence". Needless to say, the fans weren't that pleased with police involvement and took it to social media to express their discontent.

He said: "It's a odd business, football".

Boyhood Leeds fan Taylor destroyed his relationship with numerous supporters after former manager Garry Monk revealed that he refused to play in the final match of last season with a move to the Premier League pending.

After falling behind to a goal from Hadi Sacko, Wood replied for his team soon afterwards from the penalty spot.

However, Chris Wood equalised from the spot on 89 minutes only for Leeds to get a penalty of their own in injury time, which Pablo Hernandez slotted away.
