‘Shameful day for us’ – Leeds United fans respond to 27-year-old’s latest message



Sunday’s clash between Newport County and Leeds United is still making headlines, with the Sky Bet League Two side revelling in their 2-1 victory over the Whites.

A Conor Shaughnessy own-goal and a Shawn McCoulsky header secured Newport a passage to the fourth-round of the FA Cup, embarrassing Leeds, who once failed to make an impact in the competition.

However, despite Newport’s heroics, it is Samuel Saiz making the headlines, after the Leeds ace was handed a six-match ban, having been found guilty of spitting at Robbie Willmott following McCoulsky’s winning goal.

The 26-year-old has been forced to issue an apology to Leeds, Newport and Willmott, which the Newport man has moved to accept on his personal Twitter account, with the 27-year-old responding with a classy message to Saiz.

Willmott wished Leeds and Saiz all the best of the remainder of the season, brushing off any ill-feeling following Sunday’s clash.
