Leeds star apologises after Wolves defeat, fans respond on Twitter: 'You played with passion' - originally posted on Sportslens.com

Leeds United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira apologised to the fans after his game-changing red card against Wolves last night. The 19-year-old midfielder was sent off when his side were 2-1 down. His departure made it difficult for Leeds to get back into the game. Leeds were 2-0 down at halftime but Ezgjan Alioski scored immediately after the break. Vieira’s sending off extinguished any hopes of a comeback. Vieira received his marching orders in the second half after a clumsy foul. The midfielder issued a heartfelt apology on Twitter. His tweet read: “Just want to apologise to the fans and my teammates for

On This Day in Football: Spurs demolish Wigan, Longest FA Cup tie in history - originally posted on Sportslens.com

On this day in 2009, Tottenham Hotspur recorded their record win in the Premier League by hammering Wigan Athletic 9-1 at White Hart Lane. Peter Crouch gave Spurs the lead in the ninth minute but Harry Redknapp’s side hardly created any further chances to double their lead in the first half. The two teams went into the interval with the score line reading 1-0. Spurs unleashed hell after what must have been some half time team talk from Redknapp. Jermaine Defoe got on the score sheet in the 51st minute and had five goals to his name by the end

Sevilla hope to complete £17.75m deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward - originally posted on Sportslens.com

Sevilla are close to completing a deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain attacking-midfielder Javier Pastore, reports Sport via talkSPORT. The 28-year-old has struggled for playing time this season and could be on his way out in January as a result. Pastore has made just four Ligue 1 starts for PSG, racking up less than 400 minutes. He’s still impressively scored and created four goals in this time, but may have to exit the Parc des Princes if he wants to be a regular in the first-team. Sevilla look to be the side that have won the race for his signature. The
