Leeds United fans can’t believe FA development following Jansson comments

Shortly after the final whistle following Leeds United’s 1-1 draw at home to Brentford, Pontus Jansson was interviewed live on SkySports as he had just scored a late equaliser to level the scores. When Jansson was asked about the earlier penalty awarded to the away side, he was evidently furious. He described the referee Jeremy Simpson’s performance as a “robbery” alongside the use of some foul language on the game. The Swede has since been asked by the Football Association to explain this.

Leeds fans seem to be most frustrated at the inconsistency of the referees considering there was an alleged headbutt earlier on in the game too, as a section of fans let their feelings be known on social media.

As well as the inconsistency element, some other fans think its a matter of bias.
