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."
Villa fans were not impressed with Bamford’s comments and have criticised the Leeds forward on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
He didnt even go to hit him. Didnt raise a hand or anything.— Scott (@CaptainScott87) August 16, 2019
Said the same thing earlier. That last episode is critical viewing just for them falling apart and how very stupid Bramford is. The end of episode 5 is good too, everything just went to pot— Mark (@Mark_Elkington) August 16, 2019
So Bamford missed three good chances last week, does he still get a hat-trick.— Razorlight1 (@Razorlight11) August 16, 2019
Dont ruin the ending. I haven't watched it yet!— Paul Brookes (@Brookesy1986) August 16, 2019
And wtf is Bamford on?! What are they going to charge El Ghazi with? Attempted pushing?
Just watched the last episode of the Leeds documentary. Patrick Bamford said about the El Ghazi incident: "If you go to murder someone but don't actually stab them you still get done, don't you?"— Heart Of The Holte (@HeartOfTheHolte) August 16, 2019
