Leeds: Gabby Agbonlahor says Luis Sinisterra should be fined

Leeds: Gabby Agbonlahor says Luis Sinisterra should be fined - Leeds United News

Pundit Gabby Agbonlahor has hit out at Leeds United winger Luis Sinisterra following his sending off on the weekend, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Red card

The Whites managed to take a point from Sunday’s meeting with Aston Villa after playing the majority of the second half a man down.

Sinisterra received a yellow card for a tackle on John McGinn in the first half and was then shown a second just after half-time for illegally blocking an Aston Villa free-kick from close range.

Graham Smyth thinks that referee Stuart Attwell may have forgotten the 23-year-old was already on a yellow, with the official coming in for plenty of criticism for his overall display.

The Latest: Agbonlahor’s comments

Agbonlahor, who contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to FI regarding Sinisterra’s sending-off, believing that Jesse Marsch should be fining the winger following his actions.

“You are on a yellow card, why would you stick your foot out when you’re so close?

“That’s time-wasting. Jesse Marsch should look at that incident before he starts waffling about Villa time-wasting.

“If you’re going to do that you’ve got to face the consequences. It happened to [Raul] Jimenez last season for Wolves against Man City. He got two quick yellows. Referees have got to make a statement.

“If you’re the manager, you’re fining that player. He made it difficult for the rest of the team.”

The Verdict: Afternoon to forget

It was certainly a frustrating afternoon against Villa in regards to Sinisterra’s actions and the way Attwell officiated, but Marsch needs to take the positives.

Leeds managed to keep Villa out for just a second clean sheet of the season, with the Whites remaining unbeaten at home in the Premier League.

Agbonlahor may well get his wish with an in-house fine for Sinisterra following his red card, and it wouldn’t come as a surprise if Marsch were to have a stern word with the Colombian, who will miss this weekend’s trip to Crystal Palace.
