Anthony Elanga was hit by an object thrown from the crowd during Manchester United’s victory at Leeds United on Sunday. The Football Association is looking into this.
As the visitors celebrated Fred’s 70th-minute goal in the 4-2 triumph at Elland Road, Elanga, 19, was injured by a rocket.
Both sets of supporters chanted a variety of derogatory phrases.
West Yorkshire Police claimed they had made nine arrests for various offenses, including missile throwing.
Despite the fact that there was “no serious unrest” and no injuries to players or supporters, the police said offenses “including public order, missile throwing, and breach of banning order” occurred.
Prior to the match, a group of 70 away fans arrived in Leeds without tickets and were issued dispersal warnings.
With two minutes remaining in what was the first encounter between the two old rivals at Elland Road since October 2003, Anthony Elanga scored his side’s fourth goal to seal victory for Ralf Rangnick’s side.
According to the UK’s football policing director, arrests at football matches in the top five English leagues are at an all-time high, with fan disorder “growing worse.”
In the first six months of the season, there were over 800 football-related arrests and over 750 documented acts of unrest.
“As far as I’m aware, Leeds United is conducting an investigation. In the end, I don’t believe anything happened” Rangnick, Manchester United’s interim manager, stated.
“Elanga appeared to be in good health and appeared pleased with his goal. Things like that should obviously not happen, and I believe this game is no exception. The ambiance was fantastic.”
Marcelo Bielsa, the manager of Leeds United, claimed he was not there for the situations in which objects were hurled, but he denounced such behavior.
“Any excess that isn’t related to sports should not be tolerated,” he stated. “I can’t comment on what you said because I wasn’t there.”
