Agbonlahor lambasts five 'Sunday League' Leeds United stars amid 'crazy scenes'

Leeds United are defending like a “Sunday League team” at the moment, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker insisted Leeds should have been “angry at themselves” following their 4-3 win over Bournemouth on Saturday (5 November).

Rasmus Kristensen, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper and Pascal Struijk lined up in front of Illan Meslier as the Whites found themselves 3-1 down just after half time.

Cryscencio Summerville scored a late winner for the second consecutive week and Agbonlahor questioned the “crazy scenes” it sparked.

“I’ve seen my friend’s Sunday League team defend better than Leeds,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider‘s Connor Whitley.

“Bournemouth were getting through at will. It was like chance after chance and they conceded three goals at home.

“Jesse Marsch when he first came in said he wanted to tweak things to make sure they were more solid defensively without losing that attacking threat with players flying forward.

“This was like no defending. You can’t keep doing that.

“That’s why I was confused by their celebrations with their winning goal. Yes, it was great to win the game but they had subs running on the pitch celebrating the third goal.

“I was thinking ‘If you defended right, you would have won the game comfortably’.

“You’ve beaten Bournemouth at home, they were over-celebrating, for me.

“I have no problem with people celebrating winners but it depends how the win is. You are playing against a team you should be beating at home after just beating Liverpool.

“If they defended properly you don’t concede three goals at home.

“They were celebrating like they’d just won the Premier League or got into the top four or reached the next stage of the Champions League. It was crazy scenes from their bench jumping on the pitch.

“It should have been a goal you celebrate but it’s like ‘Oof, we got away with one there. We don’t want to go through that again. We made it hard for ourselves’. They should be angry at themselves.”
