Leeds fans take to Twitter in disbelief as Conor Hourihane gets away with Klich punch

Leeds fans take to Twitter in disbelief as Conor Hourihane gets away with Klich punch - Aston Villa

Leeds fans knew full well that a lot of the incidents that happened in their clash with Aston Villa at Elland Road on Sunday would go to the FA for review. As expected, Anwar El Ghazi’s red card was rescinded whilst Patrick Bamford received a two-game ban for simulation. However, Conor Hourihane got off without punishment for his punch on Mateusz Klich, leaving Leeds fans seething.

The Whites cannot believe that once again they’ve seen an opponent get away with violent conduct. Against Brentford when Marcelo Bielsa’s side hosted the Bees, Sergi Canos, the Brentford winger, aimed a headbutt at Ezgjan Alioski and despite it being caught on camera, he received no retrospective ban. This time around, it was Conor Hourihane who got away with a blatant punch of Mateusz Klich.

The Polish midfielder wasn’t entirely blameless and he was the reason that tempers flared in the feisty clash as he bagged the controversial opener, leading to Hourihane letting his anger out by throwing a punch. The fact that Hourihane has gotten away without a ban means that Dean Smith will have him available for the playoffs, and he could be set to go up against Klich in a Wembley playoff final, and the Leeds fans are far from happy about it.

The Whites cannot believe that Hourihane got away with his punch on Klich and they’ll be desperate to beat Villa to promotion as revenge for the injustice.
