Tony Dorigo reacts on Twitter to Leeds' Brighton thrashing, slams Evans' post-match absence

Tony Dorigo believes Steve Evans should have been allowed to speak after Leeds' 4-0 defeat to Brighton.

Former Leeds United defender Tony Dorigo has taken to Twitter to praise the club's fans - but condemned Steve Evans being unable to speak after the match against Brighton.

Leeds suffered a nightmare at the Amex Stadium, as two goals from striker Tomer Hemed either side of Sam Baldock's deflected effort put Brighton 3-0 up, and Lewis Dunk's thumping header made it 4-0 inside 37 minutes.

Chris Hughton's men threatened to score more but it ended 4-0, leaving Leeds to reflect on a humiliating thrashing, made even more embarrassing by the fact that the match was shown live on Sky Sports.

Despite that, Leeds yet again had an amazing following down in Brighton, but their support wasn't rewarded as Leeds endured a first half horror show.

Even more frustrating for Leeds fans is that manager Steve Evans was told not to speak to the media after the game, as reported by Sky Sports, meaning that they couldn't even hear an explanation from the Scot for their disastrous performance.

After the final whistle, former Leeds left back Tony Dorigo took to Twitter to praise the club's travelling fans, stating they didn't deserve to be subjected to such a torrid performance.

Dorigo also slammed Evans being unable to speak after the full time whistle, stating that people within the club should be held accountable in the public eye when Leeds lose so heavily.

What did you think of Evans' post-match no-show?
