Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford’s comments in the Take Us Home documentary on Amazon.

Bamford was involved in a very controversial incident during Villa’s Championship game against Leeds at Elland Road last season.

The former Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough forward fell clutching his face as he pretended to be hit by Anwar El Ghazi, but television replays showed no contact.

The 25-year-old forward was suspended for two games, as Leeds failed to clinch promotion from the Championship via the playoffs.

 

In the Take Us Home documentary on Amazon released on Friday, Bamford said that he made a meal of it, and then tried to justify his action by stating that he would not have gone down had he not been touched.

Bamford said: "I made a meal of it. If he didn’t touch me, I wouldn’t have gone down."

The Villans are playing in the Premier League this season, while Leeds are aiming to finish in the top two of the Championship.

Villa fans were not impressed with Bamford’s comments and have criticised the Leeds forward on Twitter.

Below are some of the best comments:
