Ex-Leeds midfielder and current Port Vale manager Michael Brown was adamant he was going to see Leeds star man and debutant on the night Samu Saiz banned for spitting. It’s a very serious allegation and as expected Saiz won’t even have a case to answer from the FA.

Brown accused Saiz of spitting at his player in the 40th minute of the game at Port Vale. However Thomas Christiansen didn’t have a clue about it after the game despite Brown saying he had asked Leeds to substitute him. How Brown managed to ask that without asking the manager starts the theory that nothing actually happened. Also the fact that in the 40th minute and until half time Brown had said the bench was furious, but he was pictured calmly instructing his players from the touchline, so that didn’t exactly have any truth in it.

Saiz went on to score a hat trick and it was pretty clear the Vale players were pissed off with Saiz, and equally as clear that Saiz had no idea why. They kicked him throughout the game, in the second half especially and Saiz brushed it off as he rounded the keeper for his second, then laughed it off as he smashed home his third in less than 90 minutes of English football. Brown has now come out of this looking slightly daft, and Saiz is free to carry on his impressive start in English football.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
