Three Days after after a tweet by Leeds United, Karen Carney has deleted her Twitter account as she was being questioned for her comments as a pundit led to online abuse.
Leeds’ owner defended Tuesday’s message but the club condemned the abuse aimed toward the previous England international.
As gathered, She said Leeds “out-run” opponents and with the enforced rest during the Period of Covid-19 pandemic aided their Championship promotion push last season.
The Ladies in Football Club group said Leeds’ tweet was “inappropriate”.

Carney, who won 144 England caps, made her comments during Tuesday’s Amazon Prime broadcast of Leeds’ 5-0 convert West Brom within the Premier League.
