Leeds remove Bin Laden Photo Seat at Elland Road


Leeds United have removed an image of Osama Bin Laden from among their cardboard cut-out crowd at Elland Road.

With matches being held behind closed doors, Leeds have joined numerous clubs around the world in inviting fans to send in photos of themselves to take their place in the stands at a cost of £25 (R540).

An image on social media showed that a picture of the former Al-Qaeda leader, who was killed in 2011, had been printed among pictures of regular supporters.

The club said it would “ensure there are no more offensive images” among its planned 15,000 ‘Crowdies’.

The team is second in the Championship despite Saturday’s defeat at Cardiff City and host third-placed Fulham on Saturday.
