By Richard Parks

Leeds United fans are fuming at Liam Cooper after he claimed today (FRIDAY) that the team’s season fell apart following their league defeat to Millwall last September.

The United skipper said at a media conference, as quoted by Yorkshire Evening Post correspondent Phil Hay, that the 1-0 loss eight months prompted a slide that the team never recovered from.

Cooper’s extraordinary comment prompted a deluge of criticism from stunned Leeds fans on social media.
