Police arrest nine Persons after Manchester United’s win over Leeds; Here is Why.
Acting up violent when your team is loosing is what many fans do and this is not going well with football as we know it.
After the dramatic win over Leeds by the weekend it was recorded that the Leeds fans were throwing objects at the Man UTD players and some players got hit by these objects which prompted the police to make up to 9 arrests at Ellad road.
Elanga supposedly was hit by a coin while celebrating the fourth goal for Man UTD in the dramatic 2:4 win over Leeds and this sparked serious outrage.
The West Yorkshire Police said
“There was no significant disorder but there were a few incidents in Leeds City Centre ahead of the game and some minor incidents throughout the game,”
“Officers were deployed in sufficient numbers to rapidly intervene to identify and arrest the people responsible and prevent any escalation in disorder.”
The Deputy Chief Constable Russ Foster of West Yorkshire also added;
“We had a large group of 70 people who turned up in Leeds without tickets and they were swiftly identified and issued section 35 dispersal notices before the game and were not allowed to enter the grounds.
“We also made a handful of arrests for a number of offences including public order, throwing of missiles and breach of banning order.
“The majority of fans on both sides behaved appropriately throughout the match and there was no significant disorder, but we hope the early intervention and positive action that we took on the day will help send a very clear message that such incidents of disorder will not be tolerated.”
The statement issued by the Leeds United authority said that they are reviewing every CCTV footage of the match.
Their statement read;
“We will do everything possible to find those supporters who are throwing objects on to the field of play,” the Premier League club said in a statement.
“Any supporter caught throwing objects on to the pitch will be issued a lifetime ban from attending our fixtures.”
