Gary Neville reacts as Leeds United players apologise for Bournemouth defeat

Gary Neville has reacted on Twitter after Leeds United players put out a statement following Sunday’s 4-1 loss to Bournemouth.

A clip on Twitter showed them ignoring supporters who waited at their hotel after the game.

Leeds stars were in no mood to snap pictures and sign autographs after the defeat put them closer to the drop zone.

Fans called them out for their actions, and while the club have put out a message to apologise, Neville is unconvinced.

The Sky Sports pundit urged players to speak from the heart and do a video when apologising.

Tottenham Hotspur players apologised to their fans after the 6-1 loss to Newcastle United last month.

They also opted to refund the travelling supporters from their own pockets.

However, Leeds’ reason for saying sorry was mainly because of the backlash for the players’ reaction towards the kid who waved at them but got no response.

The Elland Road club are 16th in the Premier League after 34 games, with a point between them and 18th place.

Leeds are already considering sacking manager Javi Gracia after a run of three wins in 11 league games since his arrival.

The Spaniard replaced Jesse Marsch in February and they have lost six league games under him.

They face a tough run of fixtures next and could be relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

Leeds face Manchester City, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur in their last four games of the campaign.

The Whites have not played well recently, and whether they can get the desired results going forward remains doubtful.

The players need to do more than apologise if the club want to remain in the Premier League next season.
