Ex-Leeds keeper sent off for calamity foul as fans think ‘he’s playing rugby’

Football fans have joked former Leeds United shot-stopper Bailey Peacock-Farrell thought he was playing Rugby League – after he tackled a Brondby player to the ground.

Peacock-Farrell, who is currently on the books of Burnley, was shipped out on loan to Danish side AGF over the summer – the same club Jack Wilshere turned out for in 2022.

And in a clip that's gone viral on social media, Peacock-Farrell can be seen slipping inside the box, with Brondby star Mathias Kvistgaarden reacting first. However, determined to stop a goal, the Northern Irishman wrapped his arms around the Dane and hauled him to the ground.

"I think he thought he was playing rugby league," one fan joked. While a second said: "22 minutes into a game and he goes and does that! I would be so angry if my keeper did that!"

"I'm old enough to remember when I was being told this biscuit hands guy was going to be 'one of the world's best'," a third joked. And another added: "UFC takedown!"

Unsurprisingly, Peacock-Farrell was slapped with a red card, and Daniel Wass converted the subsequent penalty. Brondby went on to win the game 3-0, putting them second in the 3F Superliga – one point behind city rivals FC Kobenhavn.

Speaking over the international break, Peacock-Farrell revealed he had made the move to try and increase his playing time: "Club level has not been amazing and there's been inconsistencies in terms of game time.

"I'm just trying to rectify the club level now, that's the aim this year."
