Championship side Leeds United have issued a statement denying that their striker Samuel Saiz spat at Vale player Joe Davis.
After the 4-1 defeat, Vale boss Michael Brown told the media: “The guy who scored three goals [Saiz] spits in Joe Davis’ face in the 40th minute and it’s very hard to take.”
However, in a statement Leeds commented that: “We are disappointed by the allegations made following our game against Port Vale last night.
“We are also disappointed by the treatment of our players throughout the match.
“Our player denies the allegation and we are confident that the referee’s report will vindicate him.”
