Leeds United fans are feeling annoyed over Kiko Casilla’s case into his alleged racism aimed towards Charlton Athletic man Jonathan Leko.
Despite the fact the case has already been going on for over two months, The Atheltic’s Phil Hay is reporting that a decision is unlikely to be reached until after the new year.
The Spanish goalkeeper was charged by the FA over an alleged racial slur aimed at the West Bromwich Albion loanee during the Whites’ Championship game against the Addicks back in September (via BBC)
Casilla vehemently denied the allegations and was given extra time by the governing body to reply to his charge back at the beginning of November.
Casilla has been a crucial player for the club this season, keeping 12 clean sheets in his 21 league games so far (via Phil Hay).
Fans have been growing impatient as a result as they took to Twitter to highlight their various frustrations at the situation.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:

I have always thought that the League have been biding their time until we have those difficult festive fixtures.The ban will coincide with our game against Fulham on 22nd

Takes a while to go through every rule, looking for something that applies , just because it’s Leeds

Likely to be banned for the West Brom game on New Years Day I bet.
