According to the latest reports, Derby County have issued an official complaint to the Football League against Leeds United over allegations of spying during one of the club’s training sessions.
The two sides are set to go up against each other for their 27th Championship fixture at Elland Road on Saturday evening and the Rams noticed a suspicious character hanging around the training grounds observing Frank Lampard’s session with the club’s players.
The incident took place on Thursday and Derby soon called the police to handle the gentleman with binoculars. Later, the police revealed that the trespasser was indeed an employee of Leeds United football club who had access to spying equipment and even pliers.
Derby’s complaint read that the man was acting in direct order from their weekend opponents and released an official statement – “Derby County Football Club can confirm that officers from the Derbyshire Constabulary were called to the Derby County Training Centre at around 11:20 am on Thursday 10th January 2019 following reports of a man acting suspiciously outside the premises.”
“It has since been confirmed to Derby County that the individual concerned is an employee of the footballing staff at Leeds United Football Club. The club is now in discussion with Leeds United club officials in relation to this incident.”
Derby manager, Frank Lampard has not taken lightly to the situation and is deeply concerned by the breach of security. It is understood that the Championship leaders might face consequences in the coming weeks if proven guilty of the situation.
