Burnley reports Leeds defender Ezgjan Alioski over gesture

Leeds defender Ezgjan Alioski is facing FA probe after gesture towards Burnley's Dwight McNeil.

The pair had come together in a 70th-minute incident during the 4-0 victory for Leeds with the fourth Anthony Taylor making match referee Graham Scott aware of the flashpoint; the referee forced to bring together Burnley's Sean Dyche and Leeds' Marcelo Bielsa together for a lengthy discussion after the incident.

After the game, Dyche confirmed that one of his players had made a complaint and wanted the incident investigated.

“The complaint will be passed on to the FA. The player made the report. I was there and I have witnessed the report," the Burnley boss said.

On his part, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa added: “I would prefer the referee makes this public. I apologize (for not fully answering the question).

“If there was a gesture I didn't see it. In front of me, I saw a dispute (between the two players). I didn't think it was too different to what happens in games."
