Don Goodman has slated Leeds United’s assistant manager Julio Banuelos’ actions on Sky Sports, during their coverage of the Whites’ match against Barnsley on 25th November.

Banuelos was seen waving an imaginary card in the air, as he tried to get Barnsley’s Harvey Barnes a second yellow.

Barnes was on a caution, when he appeared to deliberately bring down Leeds’ Samu Saiz as he broke forward, and he was perhaps fortunate to escape without a second booking.

However, Goodman was not happy with the actions of Banuelos.

The Sky Sports pundit said: “I don’t like the Leeds bench. Get a grip of yourself, waving an imaginary card. Not Thomas himself, but his assistant. It’s not what we do over here. Somebody needs to tell him.”

Leeds’ match with Barnsley was a feisty affair, both on and off the pitch.

Both benches clashed during the contest, with Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom suggesting that Leeds staff lacked class for their over-zealous celebrations.

There were some fierce challenges put in by the players during the contest too, but Leeds could feel satisfied with the end result.

Goals from Samu Saiz and Ezgjan Alioski provided Leeds with the three points, which has lifted them up to eighth place in the Championship table.
