the trance images on the Leeds side after the maintenance snatch at Brentford

At the end of its victory over Brentford, Leeds officially won its maintenance this Sunday in the Premier League, at the expense of Burnley. A deliverance for the Peacocks, who were able to celebrate the good news as it should.

A joy at the height of relief. Relegated before the 38th and last day of the Premier League, Leeds United finally obtained their retention in the league, a year after returning to the elite of English football, thanks to a success at Brentford (2-1) and a setback from Burnley, relegated. The Peacocks were able to let go at the final whistle, which came to close a trying season.

Harrison’s liberating goal

Jesse Marsh did not wait for the end of the match before finding himself on the ground. The American coach celebrated his team’s retention in added time, when Jack Harrison ended the suspense with a dry strike outside the box, allowing his team to take three points when only one was enough to stay ahead of Burnley, beaten by Newcastle at the same time (1-2).

The coach, the staff, the president and even the injured players of Leeds were definitely able to let their joy burst a few seconds later, when the referee blew the three whistles. They rushed to their players and everyone fell into each other’s arms. Before joining the kop present at Brentford Community Stadium for a nice moment of sharing.

Raphinha steps up to the stands

First scorer of the match, the former Rennes Raphinha then headed for the visitors’ stand and celebrated the maintenance in the middle of his supporters, before crossing the lawn… on his knees. If this time there was no invasion of the field, the songs continued for long minutes between the public and their players, who continued the party in the locker room.

As a reminder, Leeds separated from Marcelo Bielsa last February, at the heart of a delicate season and when the club was already in bad shape. ‘El Loco’ had managed in 2020 to bring the team back to the Premier League for the first time in 15 years. His first season had been a great success, with a good game rewarded with a 9th place finish. At the end of a much more chaotic exercise, the outcome is just as tasty for the Whites, who will be playing a third season in a row in the top flight.
