What Asmir Begovic QPR goalkeeper said about red card against leeds united

The QPR shot-stopper was shown a red card for a supposed foul on Patrick Bamford
Queen’s Park Rangers goalkeeper Asmir Begovic says he’s still angry about the red card incident involving Patrick Bamford at Elland Road earlier this season.

The Hoops shot stopper was issued with a straight red card in the closing stages of Leeds United’s 1-0 win over the Championship strugglers after a coming together with Whites striker Bamford. It proved to be a controversial decision at the time and, replays showed no contract was made when the 36-year-old came out of his area towards Bamford, with Hoops boss Gareth Ainsworth confirming after the game that both players had informed him no contract had taken place.

While the red card – which meant that Lyndon Dykes had to finish the match in goal – came too late in the day to have been a deciding factor in the result. QPR appealed the red card decision and it was successfully overturned, allowing Begovic to play against Blackburn Rovers.

The former Stoke City goalkeeper was on pundit duty on Wednesday night, with his former club running out 1-0 winners against Daniel Farke’s side. Begovic says he and Bamford are ‘all good’ but wasted no time in claiming the incident still annoys him.
“Yeah, we’re all good,” Begovic told Sky Sports. “We’ve known each other from the past, so he came straight after the game and we’ve it to rites.

“I’m glad obviously the EFL took action, but I’m still angry that it happened at the time.”

Leeds were beaten 1-0 by Stoke City in just their third defeat of the Championship campaign to date. A Pascal Struijk own goal the decisive moment in the game.
