Tyrone Mings has stated that no-one can ‘bully’ Aston Villa following their drama-filled 1-1 draw with Leeds United on Sunday afternoon at Elland Road.
In one of the most chaotic games of the season, Mateusz Klich scored a controversial goal in the second half despite the Villa players thinking the game was going to be stopped because Jonathan Kodjia was down injured.
Initially it looked like Tyler Roberts was going to kick the ball out of play because of Kodjia’s injury, but instead, he played a through ball to Klich who scored.
That angered the Villa players and their coaching staff with pockets of melees taking place all over the pitch before Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa decided to allow the away team to score an uncontested goal.
After the match, centre-back Mings, who was arguably the best player on the pitch against the third-placed side, sent this message to the supporters from his personal Twitter account.

In the end, the game finished 1-1 and it isn’t a surprise that Klich’s goal and Villa’s uncontested goal has been a topic of debate throughout the country.
Both teams could still yet meet later on in the season because if they win their respective playoff semi-final matches then they will face off in the final at Wembley in May.
