After Leeds United and Aston Villa drew 0-0 on Sunday at Elland Road, Ebanie Bridges called Aston Villa “p*****s.”
The world champion bantamweight boxer watched as Leeds competed against Steven Gerrard’s team in a competitive match. She shared several pictures from her trip on social media, one of which was her posing in front of Billy Bremner’s statue just before the game started.
However, she was in for a letdown when Leeds lost a man after the break when Luis Sinisterra received a second caution for blocking a free-kick. Even though Villa continued to dominate and the home team managed to hold on for a draw, Bridges and other Leeds supporters criticized the Villans for what they perceived to be “time wasting” and “going down easily.”
After the game, Bridges posted on Twitter, calling Aston Villa “p*****s”:
She continued by retweeting an insult directed at the guests: “[They] Spend more time laid on the grass than playing football.”
Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch agreed with The Blonde Bomber’s assessment of Villa’s performance and openly blamed them for turning the game into a “snail’s pace” after the final whistle.
Due to his suspension, Marsch was forced to watch from the stands. He said to Sky Sports: “Villa slows the game down, and now we’ve had two or three opponents here who just constantly give the ball away and take a minute on every goal kick. So, to manage this, we obviously need some assistance.
“We need to work together. Again, the sad thing is that this is the league’s best setting for me, and our supporters don’t come here to watch a game move slowly.
With a game left to play, Leeds are still one point ahead of Villa in 12th place. The team will travel to Selhurst Park for their upcoming match against Patrick Vieira’s recently struggling Crystal Palace squad.
