Leeds manager Jesse Marsch has demanded better protection for his players from referees after Crysencio Summerville was ruled out for a month with an ankle injury.
The Dutchman was hurt during a nasty tackle by Cardiff defender Tom Sang in the FA Cup third round game last weekend. Marsch is furious at some of the challenges which Summerville and Willy Gnonto — one of the Premier League’s most-fouled players — have received in recent weeks.
‘Opponents have tried to bully them,’ said Marsch, who welcomes striker Patrick Bamford back into his squad for Friday night’s trip to Aston Villa.

‘Frankly, I don’t think the referees have protected those two players well enough. I would like to see referees protect attacking players more. It is about managing it in the match to make sure that the players that most fans come to see have the best chance of being on the pitch.’
Meanwhile, Leeds are understood to have agreed a club-record deal worth up to £35.5million to sign French forward Georginio Rutter from Hoffenheim.
