Paddy Power have taken a dig at Leeds United in their Huddersfield Town kit announcement video and Whites fans are not impressed.
The video, which was posted to the betting site’s Twitter account, clarified that the unusual kit that Huddersfield released on Wednesday was indeed just a publicity stunt and that the Terriers’ kit for the 2019/20 season would not include a shirt sponsor, despite being sponsored by Paddy Power.

The video included a dig at Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa over the ‘Spygate’ saga from last season.
In January, the Argentine coach admitted that he had sent a member of the Whites staff to watch Derby County training ahead of a meeting between the two sides.
Bielsa would later admit that he had spied on every opponent he had faced in the Championship up until that point.
Complaints were made to the EFL and after weeks of controversy Leeds were fined £200,000.
With Huddersfield back in the Championship after suffering relegation last season, there will be two West Yorkshire derbies between the two clubs in the 2019/20 campaign.
Paddy Power’s dig will ensure that there is no love lost between the rivals and it appears that many Leeds fans have not been impressed by it.
