Liam Cooper clears up accusations of swearing at Leeds fans on Twitter

The Leeds defender took to social media after his side's 1-0 win over Bristol City.

Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has cleared up accusations that he swore at supporters on Saturday afternoon.

Indeed, after Leeds' 1-0 win over Bristol City at Elland Road, the 24-year-old took to Twitter amid suggestions he swore at some fans.

It was simply a disagreement with goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, however, and Cooper was delighted to have earned three valuable points for their Championship campaign.

Leeds fans will no doubt be pleased to return to winning ways after their 1-0 win, regardless of the quality of opposition or performance.

Both BBC pundit Noel Whelan and head coach Steve Evans admitted Leeds would need to be far better against superior opponents but a win is a win and there were several positives for the Whites on Saturday.

Next up for United is a trip to Brentford, a former club of their former manager Uwe Rosler. Evans will relish the prospect of two wins on the bounce but the likelihood is that will require a much better display.
