Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United are winning a lot of admirers with their football this season. The EFL Championship leaders are playing the kind of attacking football that has even neutrals excited for their games.
Manchester City full-back Benjamin Mendy was the latest player to express his admiration for the Whites earlier in the week, and now, it seems you can add television company Sky UK to the list.
After Leeds thrashed Preston 3-0 on Tuesday night, one Leeds fan jokingly tweeted that BT Sport’s ratings for the Champions League might be suffering since the Leeds game was live on Sky at the same time. In response, Sky UK’s official handle put out a tweet that referred to Leeds United as ‘we’.
With fans of opposition teams already critical of the channel for prioritising Leeds games over others for live broadcast, this tweet does nothing to allay their fears.
Check out the interaction below:
While it is clear that the person managing Sky UK’s social media account was a Leeds fan, fans of opposition teams will take this as further evidence that Sky Sports are massively biased towards the Whites.
