Steve Lansdown wants Leeds United to be punished for spying.
He has said that their points should be deducted.
Bristol City owner Steve Lansdown has said that he wants Leeds United to be punished by deduction of points for spying on other teams this season. Marcelo Bielsa has himself confessed that he has spied on the other teams and has said that he has done nothing illegal. The Argentine gaffer also said that he has admitted to the fact as he wants to make the investigation easier for the EFL.
Speaking about the “Spygate”, Lansdown said in an interview with BBC Points West, “The only thing that makes sense if I’m honest is a points deduction. They ought to seriously consider it but I don’t think that will happen as I don’t think the EFL will be strong enough to do something like that.”
He added, “A fine would go some way towards showing it’s not acceptable. Whatever happens we mustn’t condone it. If he’d asked to send someone to watch our training we would have said no. And every other football club would say no. So why does he think it’s acceptable to do it? However great a coach he is, it’s the wrong thing to do. Poking around and skulking around a training ground is not part of the game.”
