Leeds Fans Throw Object at Man Utd Elanga During 4-2 Home Defeat
Rangnick punched the air in front of the travelling fans at the end of a game in which supporters traded unsavoury chants.
Some Leeds fans also threw objects at visiting players, with one item hitting teenager Elanga as United celebrated Fred’s goal.
“As far as I know, there is some investigation going on from Leeds United,” Rangnick said. “I don’t think that anything happened in the end. Anthony Elanga looked well and he was happy about scoring his goal.
“Obviously things like that should not happen and I think even more so this game. The atmosphere was great.
“At times we had to cool down things on the pitch a little bit but this is what I did when I walked onto the pitch (during a late melee). I didn’t want anything to happen – no yellow or red cards.
“In moments like this, I think it’s important to try and cool things down.”
Leeds counterpart Marcelo Bielsa said he did not see the incidents involving objects being thrown but condemned such actions.
“Any excess other than sporting should not be approved,” he said. “I can’t evaluate what you spoke about because I didn’t see it.”
