Spy gate: FA to investigate Leeds after Derby spied on in training

The craziest story you could imagine

The Football Association are set to investigate Leeds after a ‘spy’ was spotted with wire cutters and binoculars at a Derby training session ahead of their clash.

Derby are set to face off against Leeds this evening in an incredibly important game for both sides.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team are looking to strengthen their grip on the Championships top spot.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard and Derby are looking to move up to fifth with a win tonight.

However, the game has been marred by an alleged Leeds spy at Derby’s training ground this week.

Did Leeds try to spy on Derby?

It was reported on Thursday that Derby were forced to stop a training session after they spotted someone trying to watch.

Police were called and the perpetrator was removed from the premises.

Where it gets interesting is that Leeds are allegedly behind it.

Derby released a statement on Friday claiming they had received confirmation that the intruder was an employee at Leeds.

The statement read:

“It has since been confirmed to Derby County that the individual concerned is an employee of the footballing staff at Leeds United Football Club.”

“The club is now in discussion with Leeds United club officials in relation to this incident.”

“At this time no further comment will be made.”

Now, according to the Mirror, the FA will investigate the matter.

While there is no discussion about what punishment could follow if they are found guilty of spying on their opponents, you would imagine it would be a serious punishment.
