Big Sam slams youngster’s error against Man City

Leeds boss Sam Allardyce was furious with Pascal Struijk giving away a penalty on Saturday.

The dutch defender entered the game in the 80th minute and just a few minutes later gave away a penalty. Struijk clattered into Phil Foden as he made a dart into the box.

Allardyce made it clear that he was unhappy and disappointed with the 23-year-old defender. Even though Ilkay Gundogan missed the penalty, City ended up winning the game 2-1.

Alladyce said: “I was slightly fearful, but we sorted it out for the second half and told them they were playing with too much fear.

“They needed to get on the front foot and try to challenge them. Apart from a silly penalty… and a great save by Joel [Robles] that gave us a chance to go up the other end and score.”

“It was disappointing that one of our subs [Pascal Struijk] gave the penalty away.”
