Leeds United have been fined for Spygate.
The Whites have been fined £200,000 by the EFL for the controversial allegation.
Leeds United have been fined £200,000 by the EFL for their controversial “Spygate”, as they were alleged to watch over the training of their Championship opponents. Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa confessed of the offence in a press conference as he said that he wanted to help in the investigation.
In an official statement, the EFL said that Leeds’ conduct should not be repeated. They also said that it was significantly short of the standards expected by a Championship side.
EFL Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said, “The sanctions imposed highlight how actions such as this cannot be condoned and act as a clear deterrent should any club seek to undertake poor conduct in the future.”
He added, “We will now look to move on from this incident and commence the discussions about introducing a specific regulation at a meeting with all clubs later this month.”
Leeds United are currently at the top of the league table in the Championship and are looking strong to make a comeback into the Premier League for the first time since 2004.
