Mateusz Klich responds in four words to the disputed Patrick Bamford vs. Leeds United and QPR incident.
Crysencio Summerville’s goal in the first half gave Leeds United a 1-0 victory over QPR, and the visitors finished the game with 10 men.
No matter the opponent tonight, Daniel Farke’s team needed all three points after losing to Southampton in their previous game. However, Leeds had to defeat lowly QPR.
The game’s lone goal was scored by Crysencio Summerville after excellent work from Georginio Rutter to set up the play with more fluid play.
Before Pascal Struijk put an inch-perfect pass through to Patrick Bamford, who was up against an advancing Asmir Begovic, the game appeared to be settling into a routine 1-0 victory.
The QPR goalkeeper then dived for the ball, causing Bamford to fall to the ground and receive a red card. Begovic was immediately furious.
Replays revealed that the goalkeeper did not really touch Bamford; still, he was dismissed, and Lyndon Dykes stepped in to play goal, remaining untested for the duration of the match as Bamford’s free-kick struck the wall.
Mateusz Klich stokes the fire
The Leeds supporters responded with sarcasm following the game, feeling vindicated by an errant refereeing choice this time around after been wronged last time out against QPR in January 2020.
Mateusz Klich was alerted of Bamford’s conduct and commented to a supporter about the event on social media:
It is fairly obvious that there was no touch, and Bamford acknowledged as much to Gareth Ainsworth after the game.
The concern here is that this might lead to retroactive action as an attempt is made to revoke Begovic’s suspension.
In conclusion, though, it had no impact on the game’s outcome because, despite our terrible performance, we were the deserving winners.
For Begovic’s sake, let’s hope that justice is served and that he is back in the lineup for the weekend.
