Leeds United news: Club to write to Premier League after VAR controversy

Leeds United VAR latest news Crystal Palace

It's been a difficult week for Leeds United who have been beaten 4-1 twice within six days. 

The loss to Crystal Palace was not without controversy too. As many Leeds fans will no doubt know, Patrick Bamford was judged to have been offside when seemingly levelling the score at 1-1 after pointing to a teammate to indicate he wanted a through ball played. 

While manager Marcelo Bielsa refused to comment on the decision, the fallout looks to be continuing somewhat.

According to the Daily Mail, the club themselves are set to write to the Premier League in order to get more clarity on both VAR and the offside rule.

While it should be noted that the report states Leeds are not criticising the performance of the officials in particular, they are reportedly determined to voice their concern on how the use of both the rule and the technology is impacting English football at the moment. 

Victor Orta was understood to have been furious in the stands at Selhurst Park. 

GIVEMESPORT run a weekly 'How the Premier League table would look if VAR wasn't being used' feature and, as of game-week 7 (last week), Leeds would actually be a point worse off in general according to our estimations. 

Still, the decision to rule Bamford's goal out is obviously controversial and it's easy to see why it would irk the Leeds United camp. Indeed, his arm may well have been ahead of the Palace defenders but there is only the shoulder from which it is legal to score from.

Reacting to the call, Gary Lineker described it as 'ridiculous' while Robbie Savage claimed it was the 'worst ever in the history of football'.
