Leeds fans slam Sasso on Twitter after controversial verdict

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds fans on Twitter have not taken kindly to Sheffield Wednesday defender Vincent Sasso after he claimed the Whites were not better than the Owls.

The Yorkshire duo are currently close in the league table with just three points and two places currently separating them.

However, Garry Monk’s team currently have the advantage in fourth, while Wednesday sit in sixth.

Leeds have also beat Sheffield Wednesday twice from their two games this campaign with their most recent clash ending in a 1-0 win for Monk’s outfit.

But, despite all this Sasso controversially believes Leeds are not better than the Owls and in a press conference covered by Yorkshire Evening Post writer Leon Wobschall he spoke out about the famous Elland Road side.

This comment has understandably got the back up of a number of Leeds fans on social media and a large number have hit back at the Wednesday defender.

One fan asked why their Yorkshire counterparts were always talking about them following Sam Hutchinson’s comments in February, while another simply shared that Sasso would not get in their reserves.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Sasso played the full 90 minutes in Wednesday’s recent defeat against Leeds, picking up a booking in a bad afternoon for the defender.

He will now be hoping to help the Sheffield-based club win promotion to the top flight, but these comments could help spur Leeds on.
