Leeds star Samual 'Saiz' sorry for spitting

Leeds United playmaker Samu Saiz has been banned for six matches after being charged with spitting at an opponent in their FA Cup defeat by Newport County.

The West Yorkshire outfit suffered an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Newport away from home at Rodney Parade in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

"Samuel's behaviour was unacceptable and the player will now be subject to an internal disciplinary hearing on top of serving a six-game ban".

Note that you need the latest version of the GeForce Experience app as well (version 3.12) which Nvidia plans to release tomorrow. If I actually tried to play the game locally, it would be impossible as the game was barely rendering at all or at 2fps.

Leeds, who won the cup in 1972 with victory over Arsenal, will also be hoping to progress further in the cup than they did last season.

"I don't know, I didn't see it", he said, when asked about the red card.

"I am grateful for the support I receive from our fans and I understand that I am a role model to the next generation of Leeds supporters, I will ensure that my behaviour moving forward reflects that".

TV cameras failed to pick up the incident which followed Newport's injury-time victor, but it is believed Saiz spat in the direction of Robbie Willmott which sparked an angry reaction from the home players.

If the ban stands, Leeds will be without Saiz for a chunk of key games.

It is not the first time that Saiz has been involved in a spitting row since joining Leeds from Huesca last summer.
