Leeds’ director of football Victor Orta had to be restrained after his team’s 2-2 draw with Brentford at Elland Road on Sunday.

The administrator was furious at full-time, screaming and gesturing at an individual several yards away.

The drama unfolded after Patrick Bamford scored a last-minute equaliser for Leeds against their Premier League rivals.

Someone – or something – caught Orta’s attention at full-time and a feisty exchange unfolded.

He was filmed putting his finger to his lips, telling the individual or group in question to keep their opinions to themselves.

Victor Orta was furious after Leeds’ 2-2 draw with Brentford



It’s not clear who Orta’s sensational row was with, as the camera remained focused on the chief, although it appears they were quite some distance away.

He was restrained by Leeds’ managing director Angus Kinnear and the row eventually calmed down.

The West Yorkshire side took the lead against Brentford in the first half, as Tyler Roberts scored his first Premier League goal of the season.

Goals from Shandon Baptiste and Sergi Canos turned the game on its head before Bamford came off the bench to score a late equaliser.

The result leaves Leeds 14th in the Premier League on 16 points, with Brentford one point and three places ahead.

Brentford’s next game is at home to Watford on Friday, while Leeds face a daunting run of fixtures against Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

“We deserved a point, perhaps we should have won, given the amount of time we dominated the play and in terms of how much danger we caused compared to the opponent,” said Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa.

“We dominated for an hour of the game and duplicated the number of chances they had, even if it was a game without many chances.”

Bamford was making his first appearance for Leeds in nearly three months after overcoming a worrying ankle injury.

On the striker’s comeback, Bielsa added: “Bamford scored a goalscorer’s goal and his opportunism stood out. You can’t teach that.”

It’s unclear who Orta was directing his anger at



Leeds have missed Bamford’s goals in recent weeks, scoring just 15 in as many Premier League games this season.

The England international was prolific last term, finding the back of the net 17 times to earn his first senior cap.

“I felt rusty as hell, but it was nice to be out there,” said Bamford. “I always felt when I came on that I was going to get one chance.

“It didn’t come for ages and ages and then [Adam] Forshaw said I was going to get one chance and so it happened.

“An ankle injury can drag on so it has been frustrating. There is no specific timescale, I’ve been setting my return for about the last six matches.

“Now that I’m over it, it feels like it has gone fast. Sometimes when you are out through injury, you become a better player because people big you up like a hero.”
