On August 31, 2010, Swansea defeated Leeds 1-0 away from home at Elland Road in the Championship.

After the match, Cooper said, as quoted by The Yorkshire Evening Post: “We came here to win, there are obvious areas to exploit against Leeds, although we didn’t do it quite as well with the ball first half, second half I thought we did look quite dangerous.”

Leeds have now reminded Cooper about those comments by posting the following message on Twitter.


Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon, hosts Swansea had 42% of the possession, took six shots of which three were on target, and earned six corners, according to BBC Sport.

Visitors Leeds had 58%, took 12 shots of which four were on target, and earned seven corners, according to BBC Sport.
