Expert: Luis Sinisterra set for extended spell out of Leeds United XI after development

Luis Sinisterra may be set for an extended spell out of the Leeds United team after his sending-off against Aston Villa.

That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Sinisterra’s dismissal on Sunday (2 October).

The 23-year-old was shown a second yellow card just after half-time for illegally blocking an Aston Villa free-kick from close range.

Sinisterra will now serve a one-game ban and will therefore miss Leeds’ visit to Crystal Palace on Sunday (9 October).

Kenny was left baffled by Sinisterra’s actions.

“It’s just stupid, isn’t it?” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“You are really letting your side down there. I don’t get why players do that even when they aren’t on a booking, it doesn’t make any sense.

“This was a game Leeds should be winning but they have been let down by one player and it has cost them.

“Stupid is the only word I can think of for a sending-off like that. He will be banned, obviously, but maybe the club should punish him as well.

“I’m sure the manager will have let him know what he thought about the situation. I was in the dressing room when Neil Warnock was going off on players, it’s not nice.

“It might be a while before we see that player again.”

Sinisterra moved to Elland Road from Feyenoord in the summer and has four goal contributions in seven games across all competitions this season.

The Whites sit 12th in the table after winning two of their opening seven games.
