A section of Leeds fans have shown their support to the FA’s proposed ban for goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.
The Daily Mail report that the Spaniard is set to be handed a 12-game suspension for racially abusing West Brom winger Jonathan Leko.
Leko, who is currently on loan at Charlton, reported the incident following The Addicks’ 1-0 win over the Whites in September.
Amitai Winehouse shared the news on social media on Friday evening, and a section of Leeds supporters were quick to back the reported decision.
