Leeds United fan BREAKS ankle while celebrating Jack Harrison’s winning goal vs Sheffield Wednesday
A Leeds United fan somehow managed to break his ankle while celebrating Jack Harrison’s winning goal against Sheffield Wednesday – and then shared the pictures on social media!
Harrison’s strike was enough to separate the sides at Elland Road, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side moving back into the Championship’s top two with just four matches left to play.
The crowds went crazy when Harrison found the back of the net in the second half, and there was incredible footage taken of a blind woman’s guide dog celebrating the goal at Elland Road.
